Coming Soon!!! An Exciting new Partnership Breeding Soldier Flies for Waste Management
Our new partner is passionate and excited about the opportunities that Soldier Flies bring for sustainable waste management….and so are we. Here is what is planned…..more details to come soon.
- Using our insect breeding facility to breed Soldier Flies for waste disposal of post consumer organic waste. (Ie vegetable scraps and left over food form cafes, restaurants, shops etc).
- Benchmark Production rates of Soldier Fly Larvae (SFL) and waste disposal rates, under climate control conditions and in the field (ambient conditions).
- Benchmark waste disposal rates of different materials (ie mealworm and cricket frass/vegetable scraps).
- Benchmark Energy consumption for the insect facility and Energy generation via solar panels.
- Help develop organic food waste disposal pod systems using SFL.
- Develop education materials (books, videos, webinars) which promote the use of SFL for every day people.
- Undertake Joint Education and public awareness programs how insects can help us become more sustainable.
- Investigate options for utilizing SFL compost (ie garden compost, feeding chickens and fish).
And most of all…..getting our hands dirty…..having Fun…..and making this world a better place!!
Want to Learn Commercial Methods…We Are One of the Few Insect Breeders who Will Show you How
There is a large learning curve breeding Crickets and other insects which can end in disaster if you don’t have the right information. We’ll teach you how to: estimate how many insects you can produce, potential markets, things to consider, avoiding potential mistakes and Lots more.
For example, did you know that new solar technology has the potential to greatly reduce or remove one of the biggest expenses (heating- day and night, even in cool climates) and you can get around 4 times more profit from breeding for human consumption ?
14 Years of Sweat and Tears…Or Access the Best Information Instantly?
Not many people realize it initially, but breeding insects is a “school of hard knocks” industry. Those who do well, learn from their mistakes quickly and learn from others who have spent years trialing different things. We have made many mistakes over the years and toiled using high maintenance techniques. Then we learnt how to do it much quicker and with less effort. After 14 years you learn a few shortcuts and learn how to:
- Build the right containers that are durable and have the right balance between ventilation, removing toxic gas in summer, heat retention and preventing pest entry.
- Build durable, stable and reliable food and water dispensers that are automated to minimize maintenance and reduce cannibalism
- Manage vinegar flies and other pests which nearly destroyed our business
- Sort, pack and distribute to customers.
- Create consistency through standardizing of feeding, maintenance and management.
- Be efficient with your time and how to reduce or eliminate costs (e.g. solar heating, reduced maintenance, efficient design).
