After having a cool spring, the humidity has finally been rising. This is my first attempt at attracting/raising BSF. I finally saw an adult flying around and was able to get a photo as it landed on some cobs of corn, perhaps to deposit eggs between the kernels. I have some corrugated foam board suspended above the food waste, but haven't seen any egg deposits.
