Frank Aragona of The Agroinnovations Podcast interviews me about black soldier fly culturing
Agroinnovations.com is a great source of information regarding sustainable agriculture. In addition to this podcast you can find other episodes that I think you’ll find very interesting.
The Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) has many remarkable characteristics that make it useful to human beings. In this episode, I am joined by Jerry of blacksoldierflyblog.com. Jerry and I discuss the lifecycle, morphological characteristics, and population dynamics of the Black Soldier Fly. We also discuss strategies for attracting and managing a healthy colony. This is Part I in a two part series.
In the second part of my interview with Jerry from blacksoldierflyblog.com, we discuss use of BSF for decomposing manures, including human manure, the quality and volume of compost produced, fly larva as the primary product of BSF composting, biological racism against the Black Soldier Fly, and BSF with California Red Worms.
