What Feed Causes Size Variation in Black Soldier Fly (I)

              Effects of Different feedstock’s on BSF larval development Insect farming can be a viable new source of animal protein. Insects can be farmed in high densities with small space requirements and they have a high bioconversion ratio.  Furthermore, many insects can be reared on waste streams, which keep the environmental footprint low and assists in recycling of refuse. Consequently, the use of fly larvae in waste management has started to gain attention. One species that has gained more attention than others is the black soldier fly (BSF).  BSFL are known to feed and develop on a wide range of feed sources, such as...

                                            Commercial Production of BSFL Demographic evolution, impact of climate change on natural resources and necessity of their sustainable management, require increasing the global food production by about 70% before year 2050 in order to feed the 9 billion inhabitants the planet will count by then. The necessity to feed such a growing population generates a constant pressure on both plant and animal productions. Industrial rearing of chickens, pigs and fish is in continuous expansion due to increased consumption by humans. This growth is intimately dependent on the availability of protein sources for sustaining animal productions. Although rather anecdotal until...

Black Soldier Fly Learning Guide

                                 Black Soldier Fly Biowaste Processing Urban solid waste management is considered one of the most immediate and serious environmental problems confronting urban governments in low- and middle-income countries. The severity of this challenge will increase in the future given the trends of rapid urbanization and growth in urban population. Recycling organic waste material (biowaste) is still fairly limited, especially in low- and middle-income settings, although this is by far the largest fraction of all generated municipal waste. Scientists are searching for alternative solutions for bio-degradation of municipal waste and Insects larvae can provide a best possible alternative solution....
