I haven’t really talked about Black Soldier Fly Larvae as composting organisms here on the blog yet – although I do get the odd email from people who are frustrated when they pop up in their worm composting systems. They are in fact really effective at breaking down wastes, and are also an excellent food source for fish, birds, lizards etc. One of the cool things about them that some university researchers discovered is that they can ‘self-harvest’ (if ONLY worms could do this – haha!) – thus making them even more appealing.
Anyway, I will definitely write more about them some other time. The purpose of this post (on my new “Share Board”) is to help Arthur track down some plans for a DIY Black Soldier Fly Larvae self-harvesting system. There are of course complete systems on the market, such as the ‘BioPod’, but these can be out of a lot of people’s price range.
If you have designed your own system or know someone who as, please fire me an email and I will pass along the info to Arthur.
