A bug's life - How industrious insects are recycling food waste for farmers
https://www.edp24.co.uk/business/farmin ... -1-6083325

Excerpts:

AgriGrub, based in nearby Soham, feeds the waste vegetables and fruit to the ravenous larvae of black soldier flies which are branded as Calci worms and sold as a form of live pet food for reptiles.

Their by-product is called frass - a sustainable source of plant nutrients, and a bio-repellent for crop protection. ...

... Joe Halstead, managing director of Agrigrub, said the active component in frass is called chitosan, which is already well-documented as an efficient biopesticide
