Nature's own ultimate food recyclers, BSF have proven to be a great summertime composting solution.
The BSF larvae will eat kilograms of scrap food a night in small composting units, eliminating your food waste before it can even begin to rot.
Black Soldier Fly larvae do more than just eat waste.
When they are done eating your food waste, they will harvest themselves into buckets and let you feed them to your chooks, pigs, ducks, birds and fish. You name it. High in protein and fat they could become a main ingredient in future animal feeds.
On average a household will produce a little under a kg of food waste per day. This food waste can be composted at home using black soldier fly larvae much much faster than worms can do it.
I'm new to Solider Flies and have been pleased to see both BSF and GSF adults in my worm bin in the past two days. There's an egg cluster too :). So I'm wondering how different the egg clusters look between the two species. Are they identifiable by eye? I don't suppose there's a photo somewhere of GSF and BSF eggs side-by-side?
