BSF Pre-pupae & Pupae | Free Shipping in US/Not Available Outside US                                                    - $2o.00 TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

Shipped by USPS priority mail. Let BSF take over the composting job in food scrap and composting bins. Place prepupae/pupae near your bin or pile. Free yourself from the heavy work of aerating and turning over decaying waste. Adult male and femaleBSF emerge from their puparia and mate. Females seek out decaying waste where they typically lay upwards of 400+ eggs. Larvae hatching from the eggs assimilate nutrients in the waste into insect biomass while accelerating its decomposition. Sale is per 100 g lots, approx. 500 per lot.

BSF Propagation Nursery Enclosure Kit | Free Shipping within the US 
                                                                         - $220

This Black Soldier Fly (BSF) propagation nursery unit is designed for propagating newly hatched BSF larvae and containment of mating adult BSF emerging from their puparia, and the harvesting of larval eggs, within an enclosed space in farming BSF. The structural enclosure is fabricated out of 1" pre-cut PVC pipe and fittings which on assembly form a rectangular enclosure [~78" (198 cm) L x ~55" (140 cm) H x ~29" (74 cm] over which a rectangular mosquito net is draped which contains mating BSF adults emerging from prepupae/pupae placed inside the enclosure. Two BSF egg laying/larval hatching units fabricated from Sterilite 6 qt (~5.7 L) rectangular PP plastic boxes are included with the kit in addition to an analog thermometer (readout in Fahrenheit and Celsius) and relative humidity sensor. The unit can be assembled in a few minutes with easy to follow setup instructions.

BSF egg laying/larval hatching boxes can be moved in and out of the enclosure by simply lifting up the net enclosure and allowing it to fall back to the ground after placing the boxes inside the enclosure. The enclosure is designed to stand on a large table or counter top exceeding its rectangular dimensions at its base. Alternatively, it can be placed on a flat floor or outdoors on the ground so long as the net is left to freely to the base of the enclosure in blocking off adult BSF from escaping the enclosure. 

The holes in the lids of the egg laying/hatching boxes serve as entry routes for adult females to crawl through in depositing their egg clutches. A small layer of food scrap, wetted wheat bran or other organic waste (not supplied) is placed inside the egg laying/larval hatching boxes as a means of drawing adult female BSF to the boxes. Eggs deposited in and around the boxes can either be harvested or left to hatch within a few days. Young larvae emerging from the eggs growing on waste placed inside as an attractant can be transferred to larger recycling bins or troughs used in farming larvae.

Prepupae (not supplied with this item) can also be placed inside one of the egg laying/larval hatching boxes. The lid snapped in place blocks prepupae from crawling out of the box. Adults emerging from their puparia however easily climb out and fly free of the unit into the open spaces of the enclosure and subsequently mate inside the net enclosure.
