Post Re: The fly has bitten
Hi All
I replaced the food, the larvae were looking as if they were not eating much....so i remove all the old left over food.
I added corn to get the bin drier. This so far seamed to work well.
most of the larvae are still under the corn eating..look happy... a few have started walking of.
I filled the base of the container using worm casting...
Now into the next phase....nursing the larvae until they go into flies and then more eggs???????
:D

Post Re: The fly has bitten
Most/all of the larvae have all moved into a dryer space, they have crawled off going into the pupae stage...next challenge getting more eggs from these larvae. Outside I have not managed to collected any more eggs so this larvae is it... unless I get more eggs outside.
From these larvae I need eggs

Post Re: The fly has bitten
in total I have collected 7 clusters of eggs over the last 2 days...a lot more than I had to start with.
Today I will collect a few more clusters and hopefully for another day or 2 after there will be 1 or 2 more clusters.
most of the fly have died by now... by the 26/2 all or most of this lot should be dead....
very happy now I can try and get the ball rolling..
:D :D :D :D :D
