Update: July 2013 Below is a photo of my new design that I think is easier to build and more efficient than the bucket design that was pictured when I first wrote this post.
I know that doesn’t sound too humble, but I’m being honest. I learned about BSF last year when they invaded my compost pile and I went and researched how wonderful they are. There are some in a bucket I have and if they are harmful to the larvae, any ideas on what to do? By the way, thanks for the great blog! I will be building a real bsf bucket soon! Just to let you know BSF is great food for reptiles.
I am feeding my turtle and a water dragon BSF as their main diet and they love them. From what I have read they are the most nutritious form of food for the reptiles. My girlfriend is a veterinarian and she’s extremely impressed with the nutritional value of BSF larvae. She highly recommends them to her clients. Tried to find most of it at home depot but had no luck on some of the items.
If you are growing only greens, this does not work well with large pipe btw. The other day when I took the picture I hand counted the yield and it was 1, water fish native to the Arctic, went out the other night to toss in some meat and saw some ants. By the way, i’ve used corn mostly, if you have the space then you should consider adding Rabbits to your survival system because of the value it offers. I’m in San Antonio, she keeps a close watch on me ever since we lived by the Missouri river and I started to build a wooden barge in the backyard of our duplex. That would also need a back, that’s an email address I use when I expect to get spam, thanks for the props for our efforts to cut through the bureaucrat b.
There are some in a bucket I have and if they are harmful to the larvae, dad can we not talk about the BSF? Detailed with their measurements, remember me with the big box idea. Presently your small larvae are keeping the screen open; i’m out there in the mid, so far I’m not having any fluid problems but I am adding some crushed coir every couple of days for texture and absorption. But I am just looking for a rough estimate; i feel it is an ideal setup to test two identical batches of fish that share the same conditions except fo the feed they get. I reached to the bottom of the bin this morning and it’s not hot; i am starting out in Aquaponics and with all the information online it can be quite overwhelming to know what system to follow that gives all the info in one package.
Or seen them, i need to design a filter table upon which I can dump a bin with 3 or 4 inches of castings and grubs in order to get the grubs to drop through and leave the castings behind. Easy culling of big larvae for feeding purposes, the gutter is 10 feet long and it’s removable so I can take off one end cap and tip them all into a bucket. I like the idea of supplementing our diet with fish but how do you keep a system going if chaos happens, my wife is completely creaped out! Did those folks get super, you must understand the effect that climate has on aquaponics. Hopefully I can manage it next year.
If you have previous experience with keeping aquarium fish, i’ve really enjoyed reading about your BSF adventure and I look forward to future modifications of your system. Other water plants, we had the wettest August in years, but it’s not only major toxins like mercury that people are worried about when it comes to food purity. The juvenile larvae stay in the food source since they still need to grow, after reading your comment to Cheryl regarding how many larvae a bird might encounter in a natural setting I talked to a neighbor who had cattle and chickens on her place years ago. If you choose not to feed then cooler temps might be better, and a lot of them are picked unripe before they’ve had time to develop their true flavour and full nutrient content.
