Re: mold inhibitor

We ordered our moldex from Carolina biological. It came with several recipes 
for fruit fly culture media, and did suggest that the amount of inhibitor 
used could affect fly production. Based on experience, I would say that is 
true. A heavy hand with the inhibitor will slow the flies. You want just 
enough so the flies can keep ahead of the mold, rather than totally banishing 
the mold. This amount varies with strain. With wild type fruitflies, little 
to no mold inhibitor is needed.
