Pleasant Introduction.

At a previous school I had set up practicals with Drosophila fruit flies so my present school wanted to try it.

It has been very successful, enjoyed by staff and students.
Its now become a permanent fixture of the biology year.

Delivery was well organised and I received the different sexed flies on the date id asked for them.

The flies did what they were supposed to do , very healthy and packaged well with life cycle details and advice.

Thank you.
