Best would be the flightless "vestigial winged" or "Curly winged" mutants.
You can load these in to an old empty Parmesian Cheese dispenser and
liberally sprinkle the flies over your collection!

I wonder if it is possible to home-breed these bugs to maintain a
constant supply... much as I home-raised earthworms for my South
American cichlids.
