Black Soldier Fly

Black Soldier Fly - Reproduction Then and Now

As a short reminder, our project aims to raise Black Soldier Fly larva on food waste for tilapia feed. We want to breed a large colony in order to have a continuous supply of larva. Currently we are still trying to expand the colony size, so all mature larva are put into slightly damp soil to develop into flies. In the future when the colony is large enough, we plan to save only a small portion of mature larva for breeding and use the majority of larva for fish feed.
