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.Nature's own ultimate food recyclers, 
BSF have proven to be a great summertime composting solution.

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.

    • Sorry to hear that. For me it is impossible to have a production of 300kg per day (even per cycle) with equipment of 220 dollars. Only the needed feeding area can cost more. So I think either you have found the holy grail of bsf farming or something is wrong. I wish it is the first. Regards Στάλθηκε από το 6043D μου χρησιμοποιώντας Tapatalk

    • Hi terzogr, I can unfortunately not provide any information with regards to my current, commercially viable setup. This information is extremely valuable to our company. Besides that, what we are doing may not work for you but if time is taken to do the "trail and error" stage, logical solutions will appear. In now way am I saying it is easy, because it is not, but it is worth it. I wish you luck

    • Hi ericjohn, I assume you referring to the 2 totes stacked one ontop of the other? The bottom I used as a pupating bin with a pipe connecting to the top directing the BSF up to the top "mating chamber" where both mating and laying took place. I have come a long way since then and it did work but i would not suggest it for anything besides a home use setup. Good luck,

    • I would agree with Garden Cats regarding self harvesting. If you're actually going to use them for feed then you need to harvest prior to them self harvesting, for optimum nutrient value. That being said, if you're growing larger still, then I would suggest you let them self harvest and grow your breeding pool.
