Black soldier fly breeding for FSM - trials in Uganda

Hi Everyone,
Am Osbert, a Sanihub coordinator with Water For People Uganda.
After several trials, Water For People Uganda Sanihub, has finally established the first ever colony of BSF in Uganda with plans of using the larvae in composting FS from our Decentralized fecal sludge treatment (DEFAST Technology) and onsite management of FS. I was wondering if anyone has designed similar systems before especially for Onsite management.

Dear Osbert,
Thanks for your post on black soldier fly breeding in Uganda with fecal sludge, please do tell us more. Do you have photos to share as well?

I have moved your thread into this sub-category here which focusses specifically on black soldier fly (BSF):
forum.susana.org/forum/categories/147-pr...eta-or-organic-waste

I can see that the thread could also remain in the FSM section or be in the composting section but I thought it's better to keep it all together in a BSF sub-category. Here you can also easily see who else has posted about BSF larvae so far. It's a fascinating topic but not without issues (like those legal barriers if you want to use the BSF larvea after processing as animal food, see some of the other threads in this sub-category).

Regards,

Dear Elizabeth,

Here are some of the pictures and a video. The BSF do well when fed on Coffee berries.
