INSECTS HAVE A KEY POSITION IN THE ECOSYSTEM:

They ferociously eat waste resources and upcycle them into valuable nutrients for animals.

Since no fertile land is needed for their production, they are a promising and sustainable new source compared to today’s main alternatives. Some species, such as the black soldier fly, are well-suited for growth on a large scale.

INSECT SPECIES:
BLACK SOLDIER FLY LARVAE

INSECT SPECIES:
BLACK SOLDIER FLY LARVAE

  • Waste Upcyclers: Black soldier fly larvae can grow on a large variety of wet and dry feedstock. They prefer their feedstock as a “slurry” (70% moisture).
  • High speed lifecycle: The rearing (feeding) stage of the larvae takes only up to 7 days.
  • Mass Rearing is natural: Black Soldier Fly Larvae naturally live in high densities.
  • High nutrient accumulation: Insects can recover up to 70% of proteins from their feeds. They are rich in proteins, lipids, and minerals.
  • Black soldier fly larvae do not eat, sting or bite when they are adult flies. Therefore, they are not a pest. They also do not survive cold winters outdoors therefore posing no bio-risk for temperate climate zones.
