Post hot weather worms + bsfl
Hi I've read that African Nightcrawlers have a high tolerance for heat and could eat the excess cellulose leftover from BSFL... think they co-habitate a biopod?

It all depends on the scale. A few hundred BSF is neither here nor there, but 5,000 BSF will wipe out your worms.

Jacob, first off, welcome to our forum :) If you'd like you can introduce yourself here (link).

BSFL process material so much faster than worms and, as a result, can liberate the water in the food much quicker too. This can result in conditions the worms don't like. Experiences vary and you should see the Black Soldier Fly Larvae in Worm Bins (link) topic for more info.


I Believe The Black Soldier Fly Has The Potential To Be A Beneficial Insect Second Only To Pollinating Bees
