Insect-based Processing of Biodegradable Waste
Welcome to DipTerra! We provide support and consulting services (see our Q&A's, Blog and Products & Services) in using BSF (Black Soldier Fly) larvae in getting you up and running in processing food scrap, vegetal and other organic wastes in the home and farm setting in addition to scale up designs for industrial production of BSF. Using BSF in recycling food scrap and vegetable matter is an eco-friendly, low energy and cost effective alternative method of recycling organic wastes. Liquid byproduct recovered during the recycling process can also be used to improve the ecology and nutrient quality of soils. Working with BSF provides you with an opportunity to check off the garbage pick-up grid. Pay yourself with savings realized by eliminating garbage pick-up fees (see Recycle Food Scrap at Home & Save Big)!
These harmless, non-pest insects do not spread diseases, prefer to live and thrive outdoors, and have been silently recycling organic wastes outdoors for thousands of years - true experts in the art of recycling!
BSF harvested from waste are an excellent source of high quality protein feedstock devoured by many birds (including domesticated chickens), amphibians and reptiles, and can also be fed to farmed fish such as tilapia, trout and catfish.
