I saw Jerry's evidence that BSFL are not fussy about fresh onion.... but what about a big load of crushed/preserved garlic? I bought a 2 lb. jar of the stuff ages ago and I never use it. It's got oil and citric acid in it to keep it from oxidizing.

Maybe dole it out over time? 8-)

I would much appreciate anyone's experience of feeding avocado.

I appear to have answered my own question ;) The attached photo is of what I believe to be BSF larvae/pupae found in a waste avocado dump. They readily consume the flesh of the fruit and leave the seed and the skin. Given how much waste avo we have access to and the conversation you all have regarding AgriProtein in South Africa, the mind boggles.
