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.

    • Hello guys, Benji from Quezon City. Looking around for successful BSF who could help me out. Made my own bin but no success yet, I even stocked it with BSF larvae I bought here but a lot seem to just die or go missing. I tried making a separate bucket trap but so far only succeeded in getting fly maggots/ :unsure:

    • Optimal conditions for BSFL Temperature The optimal temperature at which BSFL consume their food is around 95 °F . The minimum temperature for survival is 32 °F for no more than four hours , whereas the maximum temperature allowing survival is 113 °F . The larvae will become inactive at temperature s less than 50 °F and temperatures higher than 113 °F , where their survival decreases dramatically. The best range of temperature for the larvae to pupate is from 77 to 86 °F . For mating purposes, optimal temperature is around 82 °F (Zhang, 2010) . :P :P
