Hello ladies and gents, i just want to share my composting style. Black Soldier Fly larvae is what I use to compost, they are voracious eaters, very effective decomposer of organic wastes. BSFL in a compost system can reduce volume by 50%.
BSFL Are a sustainable resource of protein for reptiles, animals and human consumption, if your into eating bugs. (One day I have to give it a try) at the pupal stage of there life cycle. Larvae also produces another valuable resource called FRASS, it’s an odorless residue that can be used as an organic fertilizer and is what saturates my soil mix, but there’s other valuable resource, Amino acids, CHITIN and LIPIDS, can be extracted from bsfl, they are (dried)32% protein, 37%lipids , 19% minerals, 9% chitin
I harvest, dry and grind my larvae at the last stage before they pupate, which has the highest % of the mentioned above.
Eggs laying females are attracted to rotting fruit ,veggies and manure
Pics of eggs and fly’s
Here’s some newly hatched larvae
Will be posting on how to build a Bsfl bin , attract and harvest soon, Thanks everyone have a blessed day
