My chameleon eats large crickets, however I inherited a fruit fly colony. Would the larger cham still eat the small flies?
I think you have soil/fungus gnats. I've never seen fruit flies go into the soil. And there are methods outside of pesticides for clearing them out.I don't see it happening. I somehow got fruit flies in the soil of our vailed's enclosure. He doesn't even notice them. If you introduce fruit flies to your enclosure and have life plants in pots or a bioactive setup like I do, you will have a living colony. The only way to get rid of them is to spray with pesticides, which you would not want to do with your chameleon in there...
I would not recommend it.
That's an excellent point and I don't know how I didn't think about it, but I don't think that's it because they are brown and there are very few of them. I also checked the soil and didn't see any crawling there. We had them in our house plants once.I think you have soil/fungus gnats. I've never seen fruit flies go into the soil.
