As I mentioned earlier, I have a egg-laying-hatching box in my fly breeding box. Which I remove every couple of days/weeks to remove the maggots and put them in the grub raising box. Here is a photo of this egg-laying-hatching-box. In the scale up you can see a clutch: http://www.spiderpix.com/aller...

Is the wire coming out from the right side a temperature probe (thermometer)?

good eye! Yes, I was curious about the temperature in the grubs-box. At a room temperature of 21,6°C (70,9F) I measured 43°C (109.4F) between the maggots.

Martin I've read the Google translation of the thread on the terrarienbilder forum and I'm wondering if you or Michael had any problems with BSFL escaping from your bins? BSFs are very lazy.

I am going to add soaked dog food to their diet. If that works out well, I will save the rest of the bag for feeding them indoors this winter as I don't really want to bring the horse manure indoors, lol.
