Post BSF laying eggs in Chiang Mai Thailand
A few days ago i opened my temporary BSFL bin and a fly entered looking for a place to lay and egg. She was totally engrossed in laying her eggs. She found a small hole in the old Styrofoam box that I am using as a bin. I watched for about ten minutes. During this time a housefly came to attack her but she just ignored the housefly, After a few seconds I shooed the housefly away. The eggs appeared to be like a long thin piece of uncooked spaghetti.

nivram welcome to our forum :) If you'd like you can introduce yourself here (link).

If you would like to add your location to our Black Soldier Fly Mapping Project (link) see the Range and Identification section (link) for the additional information we require.

Not sure exactly what you were seeing but BSF eggs are not normally like "a long thin piece of uncooked spaghetti"

Additional photos of eggs can be found in the Photo reference guide for identifying Black Soldier Flies (link)
