Post BSF Business
Does it seem possible that one could obtain free food wastes from the community (restaurant, schools, etc.) and use that to grow black soldier flies to feed ones own ducks, supply to community chicken flocks, and sell to reptile owners? So the food would be free you would just need to manage it and provide the environment for them. Could they live just off the aforementioned food waste?

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

See Commercial Operations Using BSFL topic (link). There are additional issues if used as feed for animals intended for human consumption, see Regulations regarding feeding insects to livestock (link).

No business but I do raise them indoors as a hobby. See the Small Scale Indoor Breeding topic (link).
