Post "Black Soldier Fly Bullet"
A Texas A&M entomology professor developed "Black Soldier Fly Bullet" technology that will help the environment and serve as an animal feed protein source.

Excerpt:

"Bullet technology

Tomberlin and his team have come up with a more efficient way to harness the process of waste reduction with a new technology he calls the Black Soldier Fly Bullet. The Bullet provides storage of the larvae for an extended period of time, giving the human users the ability to “wake them up” whenever the need arises by opening the container and placing them on the waste material. ...

... “We were able to develop a system to put them in a state of stasis,” said Dr. Jonathan Cammack, chief operating officer of EVO Conversion Systems and former AgriLife Research postdoctoral research associate. “We are taking newly hatched larvae and putting them in an optimal environment to develop to a certain point, then sit and hang out until ready to be used.”
