Post Hi from Thailand
Hi everyone, my name is Tom, I am English but have settled in Thailand where I am an English teacher.

I have a small farming situation with 15 chickens and some arable land for small vegetable growing, nothing fancy but a hobby, so decided to look at self sufficiency regarding feeding the flock and I believe BSFL will benefit cost and environmental wise.

With my local girlfriend we have been able to get a local coffee shop and a couple of restaurants to provide waste when I can collect so hopefully the building of the accommodation for the flies and larvae will be my only expense in the next few months, I hope to be able to attach pictures and maybe video later but my knowledge of doing that is limited.

I am currently waiting for my first batch of bought BSFL to pupate having built their accommodation!!, am a bit worried because of the heat here at present (40c daytime temp), worried because the pupae look dry, anyway I should find out in the next 3-5 days.

Looking forward to getting information from the forum and hopefully meet some friends along the way.


Thanks, TOM.
