Drosophila in that heat, or do you raise them
in a temperature-controlled environment?

Of course flies die at such hot temperatures. The entire lab is constantly
maintained at 25 oC and we use temperature controlled cabinets for
maintaining different temperatures for specific experiments. During the hot
summer days we either use the fly food in 1-2 days (to avoid drying) or
store them in refrigerators.
