Wood Wool otherwise known as Excelsior is excellent for use in Fruit Fly (Drosophila sp.) cultures providing adult flies with a dry place to rest and maggots a place to pupate. Also ideal for cultures of Bean Weevils / Seed Beetles etc.
Our Wood Wool is made from Kiln Dried Spruce making it light in weight and therefore more economical to ship as well as giving you more cups per gram. We recommend using approximately 3 grams of Wood Wool per pint culture, a 100 gram bag will therefore give roughly 33 cultures.
Wood Wool is also a fantastic bedding material for Small Mammals.
