Insect-based Processing of Biodegradable Waste
This e-book describes the biology of the Black Soldier Fly.  It includes an overview of the importance of the Black Soldier fly in waste recycling, farming and biofuel production; a general description of the Black Soldier fly, its classification and geographic distribution; the life cycle of the Black Soldier fly; the chemical composition and nutritional value of various life stages; and the physiology of Black Soldier fly, their behavior and ecology. It is available in pdf format and will be sent by email to the address specified in your order. All sales are final. 

Black Soldier flies are insects common in temperate, subtropical and tropical regions of the world. Their larvae feed off of decaying matter and are extremely efficient in recycling yard waste and food scrap. They are very useful in backyard gardening, fish farms and poultry farms in converting organic waste into fertilizers (for fields, potted plants and hydroponics) and biomass (for animal feedstock and in producing biodiesel). 

Black Soldier Fly biotechnologies are sustainable, eco-friendly, low odor, low energy and low cost alternatives to conventional methods of processing waste. Unlike common houseflies, Black Soldier flies do not spread diseases. This, in combination with their fast growth rate, makes them very attractive for controlled processing of organic waste.
