Black Soldier Fly Larvae
I have been researching ways to nourish my chickens without relying too much on commercial feed. One topic I have seen several times, but ignored completely until now, is Black Soldier Fly Larvae. I watched a few permaculture videos where they utilize this protein source for their birds. I finally decided to look into it and I was surprised to discover that these creatures are thriving in my worm bin.They are actually very interesting bugs. The larvae eat rotting plant and animal matter very quickly and turn it into rich fertilizer.
