Our compost bin is a "hot commodity" for a Sewanee
Scientist. She was thrilled to find in it, the right stage of larva,
that will grow into Black Solider flies.
They want to grow them my the thousands in a lab and are collecting
eggs that have been deposited in samples of variegated cardboard. (top left photo)
Eventually, the larva which is made of fat and protein will be
eaten by chickens. The University is aspiring to be self sustaining
with their garden and chicken flock.
