Post BSF Larvae for sale in Australia
Since posting on this forum I have had several inquiries from members to buy BSF grubs/larvae.

I have since successfully sent BSF eggs and mature larvae across the continent (Bowen QLD to Western Australia).

I can send BSF egg clusters and larvae by Express Post for $35... you will receive over 2,000 eggs plus mature or near mature larvae within 3 to 4 days of posting.

If you would like to buy some, PM me for more info.

With excesses of eggs you might be able to use them to rear green lacewing larvae for the Integrated Pest Management market. I know that when I bought some they came packaged with moth eggs for the trip, and I know bsf eggs are remarkable for their time until hatching (relative to other flies).

Aussiemoo, are you saying that green lacewing larvae feed on the eggs of other insects?

Rooster I know they will feed on the eggs of other insects certainly, as I have seen them eating moth eggs in the cardboard container that they were shipped in. As for in the wild I would say yes as well, they eat caterpillars, aphids, and anything else they can find on leaves. When they hunt they look like tiny beagles, they 'sniff' around looking for something, poking their mandibles into crevices and often covering the same ground twice. My guess is that if they came across a clutch of eggs they would eat it for sure.
