Breeding

The first step in the breeding phase involves collecting the eggs of the Black Soldier Fly.  The eggs are laid by mature Black Soldier Flies in special trays, making it easy to collect them. The eggs are generally collected every two days, after which they are transferred to special feeding containers in which they can grow for a few more days before entering the production phase. 

In the production phase, the tiny newly hatched larvae are transferred to a new source of nutrients in the Insect Engineers vertical stacking system to grow further.

The breeding phase is characterised by higher temperatures in combination with controlled humidity and flow of fresh air.
