  1. the bsf larva realley do sound like rain drops they r really neat i am gonna send ya pic of them , thanks dan

  2. do you have a larger unit for my small chicken ranch, to digest the chicken bodies and provide grubs for food?

  3. hello sir, just getting into bsfl and look at your site. where do i go to place a order of the larvae from you. thanks paul

  4. I’m very excited! These gruesome little fellas are voracious! I followed your instructions & built a DIY bucket unit – with several innovations of my own. It took me a long time to attract BSF but now I’ve got a ton of them. They have not started migrating yet, but I want to be prepared when they do. How can I incubate mature larva to adulthood safe from predators? How can I ensure that they lay eggs in my bucket? My heart has been broken too many times by disloyal lady bugs & praying mantises. I live in Southern California & so should be able to keep this colony rolling all year (i hope). Any advice would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!!!

  5. well let me say this i had been thinking about getting some larvae too start a colony,and i had some chicken feed that got wet and they showed up and statred too lay eggs in the container low and behold they some how they laid eggs in my camper and i have had them hatching out as flies since the forth of July every day fron 1 too 6 or 8 hatch out ,and im beside myself too figure out how they got too this stage ,there isnt that much too eat lol. is this an oddity or what .i read they did’t come inside but they did . my camper is cluttered up but there isnt any rotton or spoiled food in here so how can the be reacing fly stage is my question thanks Philip

    • Hi philip,

      That is an odd situation but the basic behavior of BSF is simple. The eggs are laid near a food source and that’s were the larvae develop, but once they are ready the larvae leave the food source to find a quiet place to pupate. After approx. 3 weeks or longer, depending on temperature, the adults emerge to begin the cycle again. The question is; how did the mature larvae make their way into your camper? It’s not very likely that the larvae crawled up from the ground, so even though you don’t have an obvious food source in the camper you still may have had eggs laid there. If that’s the case I would guess that the BSF females were attracted to the waste in the toilet (holding tank). BSF larvae will develop on a diet of human waste and may have done so in this case. The eggs could have been lain outside on a vent pipe and the newly hatched larvae then would have crawled down to the waste. I hope this helps you figure out this puzzle, and I hope you will update us with any new information.
