    Default Separating flightless fruit flies from dust?

    How do you all go about separating flightless fruit flies and other very small feeders (pinheads etc) from excess calcium/vitamin powder when dusting?

    I pour a little supplement into a 32 oz deli cups, add the flies and shake. It’s easy once you get the hang of it and it allows you to dust more evenly. As far as removing excess dust the best way is to not over do it. They will groom themselves clean as well.
