It’s a Bug Eat Bug World – BlackSoldierFlies.com
Black soldier fly larvae can be used to feed other insects, as shown by the results of two recent studies. In one of them, larval meal was fed to lady beetles, which are beneficial biological control agents eating a wide variety of agricultural pests. In the second study, ground black soldier fly larvae were fed to mosquito larvae used for research. In both cases, black soldier flies provided suitable, but not optimal, diets. Still, this shows promise, especially if black soldier fly meal is mixed with other ingredients into formulated insect diets.
