I also live in Brazil. I live in the state of Ceará and my location is: Lat 37 ° 28.494'O and Long 37 ° 28.494'W
I am creating BSFL to feed tilapia in the future I will create in a aquaponics system. For now I'm feeding them my backyard birds.

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

If you have a wild population of BSF we would love to add your location to our Black Soldier Fly Mapping Project (link). See the Range and Identification section (link) for instructions and required information.

Dear Boreal Wormer,

I have difficulty understanding the English language. You can include me on the map?

Before your location can be added to the map you need to post a picture of an adult Black Soldier fly from your location so we can make a positive ID.

You're on the map (link). We're also interested in any future seasonal data you can provide. The flies are most active in warm weather but we would like to get more definite data on their active season. Dates of first sighting in the spring and last in the fall would be ideal.

I started to observe the BSF, but I think here they appear throughout the year. Our average temperature is 27 ° C and the sun comes up 360 days a year.
