Wait ... I just read somewhere on this forum that they like to lay eggs in a dark space. Is this true? All my boxes are clear plastic box (shoe box size) from the one dollar store. Definitely not dark. Is this going to be a problem? I don't think so, Jerry has is BSF in a clear tote, and I'm pretty...

dermy, here's a thread where I did a test of my 6 gallon bio-composter. It's somewhat casual but it gives a general idea for one scenario: LINK There are so many variables involved that these results should be taken as general guideline. I increased the input as the season progressed but I can't se...

Thanks, I guess I should have used a more reasonable time frame, since I'm assuming you wouldn't keep track of the amount of waste materials your adding. I know I wouldn't! :mrgreen:

How much food waste do you think a normal standard BSFL bin could process in food in an entire Season? Just wondering how much more efficient BSFL are compared to other forms of composting [I.e. Vermicomposting etc.]

Yeah the shredded cardboard has done it's job, back to an earthy smell, I think it got anaerobic because with the system I showed you need to do a lot of mixing so oxygen gets into the bottom layers and such, I also didn't do much in the way of "Waste Optimization" which now I'm starting t...

Well there are a bunch of different types, mines more of an experimental thing, it's just a 2L bottle with a few small holes in it, For food/bedding I used coffee grounds, fruit and bakers yeast. I forgot about it till now and there is no food left but some big maggots, which I'm sure are house flie...

Don't know if this is the right place, sorry if it isn't.

Is it possible to use an old fruit fly bin of mine and just add in some food wastes to attract local BSF?

So my worm bin has gone a little sour [not too bad since I've added in some of the old material that didn't screen properly] and I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to keep things flowing smoothly? If you need some pictures of the System I have running I can get some for you :).

Everything being sold as feeders are young grubs. All different sizes, but I never did see mature ones offered at any of the feeder sites. And they mostly suggest refridgeration too which will greatly increase the life span. A little warning about the refrigeration, I think it was BW who tried it a...
