- They are gaining tremendous attention as part of sustainable farming.
BSF do not go into houses or eating places. It is genetically programmed to harvest itself. When it reaches maturity, it will climb out of its food source, crawl up a ramp (cleaning itself as it goes) and drop into a container for collection.
BSF trap plans will be available to take home. Dress comfortably as part of the session will be outdoors.
