Lots of larvae for the chooks.

May need to add some pipe to the feeder to hold the quantity of larvae gathered after a few days from last collection.

Hustle and bustle.

It’s hustle and bustle in compost town. A growing population of soldier fly. Finally! I’m worried by what appears to be pale and not pre-pupae crawling off…

Frenzy.

Visible in the background of this photo is the twin BSFL compost bins. As soon as I touch a collection canister the chooks are in a frenzy.

Here it comes!

The moment the chickens have been waiting for. Down the larvae feeder they go.

Looking down the collection canister, finally the harvest is begining for soldier fly larvae from the bins.

Thats more like it!

This video shows, although it’s hard to spot more than a couple, the distribution of BSFL through the whole pile. I may retake the video as it does not show the healthy population the bin has! Honestly, I think the bins current configuration is now a winner. From the trial and error to date, good drainage, and prevention of filth flies laying into the compost are key ingredients for successful BSFL composting.
