How do you know when they're happy? Their "U"-shape?

Do you use them for fertilizer? I think I've seen/read of these before but I'm drawing a blank___? :drum:

Black Soldier Flies: "BSF larvae (BSFL) or “grubs” are uniquely suited to serve humans. While the BSF adults only live for a few days their larvae can live for several weeks, and during that time they can consume huge quantities of food waste or manure. Consequently they are very well suited to process the constant stream of rotting waste that we humans produce as well as manure produced by livestock, but that’s only half of the story. There are two useful byproducts of this process; the residue or castings which can be used as a soil amendment, and the larvae themselves which represent an excellent source of food for many types of animals including fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians and more. BSFL are already commonly used as food for exotic pets and the potential exists for large scale use on a commercial basis. If you like to fish, BSFL are also fantastic bait_ BSF as fish bait- [ Black Soldier Fly Blog "

Hey, thanks for your post... That is a Raja Puri leaf :) As for the flying critter tis unidentifiable sorry, I believe it belongs to the Hymenoptera family... Looks like a wasps and bumble bee crossbreed. ;) I have tried identifying because they are common here but nothing has been found. Could this be a black soldier fly??? Similar larvae perhaps??????

This BSF larvae bin looks like fun. Any more advice?

Yes, some BSF do look like wasps but they don't have a stinger. :waving:
