Post Faecal Sludge Management with Black Soldier Fly Lavrae
Hi all
Not sure if this is the place to place this:
http://forum.susana.org/forum/categorie ... ces-sweden

Lalander, C., Diener, S., Magri, M., Zurbrügg, C., Lindström, A., Vinnerås, B. 2013. Faecal Sludge Management with the Larvae of the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) - From a Hygiene Aspect. Science of the Total Environment 458-460, 312-318.

Inadequate and lacking sanitation and wastewater treatment systems can lead to the spreading of diarrhoeal diseases. One contributing factor in the lack of such treatment systems is the lack of economic incentives for stakeholders throughout the service chain. However, the organic fraction of the waste is high in valuable plant nutrients and could be reused in agriculture and as animal feed. For example, grown larvae of the
black soldier fly, Hermetia illucens L. (Diptera: Stratiomyidae), make an excellent protein source in animal feed, while the feeding activity of the larvae substantially reduces the dry mass of the treated material. This study examined the effect of black soldier fly larvae on the concentration of pathogenic microorganisms in human faeces and found a 6 log10 reduction in Salmonella spp. in human faeces in eight days, compared
with a b2 log10 reduction in the control. No increased reduction was observed for Enterococcus spp., bacteriophage ΦX174 or Ascaris suum ova.

Post Re: Black soldier fly Hermetia illucens Linnaeus
in the discussion before the above quote they specifically warm against using BSFL that was fed on chicken manure back to chickens because of the possibility to trasfer Ascaris and other pathogens that are not killed by the BSFL but can exist in the gut.

They suggest that BSFL that were fed on Chicken manure be fed to pigs or fish and vice versa.

I hope this helps.

Thanks Pseudobarbus. Lots of good discussion about BSF at the
Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (link)
