Black Soldier Fly Larvae Update

Black soldier fly larvae

There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of black soldier fly larvae in my compost bin! They are the spawn from about 75 original larvae which I bought 4 months ago. Between the redworms and the larvae I should be able to supplement some of the feed for my chickens and tilapia.
