banner_benefits
  • Divert and digest all food scraps from smelly garbage bin, kitchen insinkerator and open-air garden composter
  • Re-capture valuable lipids and proteins found in kitchen waste and transform them into usable live food for domesticated animals and wildlife
  • Friable compost may be used in garden or as the ultimate worm bin food, producing casting faster than ever
  • Family friendly system provides children with an education in sustainability, the cycle of life, and organic gardening
  • Helps reduce carbon footprint associated with food scraps decay into methane in landfills by diversion and recycling
  • Actively feeding grubs secrete a natural fly repellant called a synomone (an interspecies, chemical communication) that alerts and warns other kinds of flies to stay away from the food, since BSF are already present
  • Beneficial Soldier Grubs are self-separating, auto-harvesting, robust, prolific, hardy, indigenous, harmless, easy-to-store, simple to transport, dry to the touch in pupal stage, a convenient bait, and extremely nutritious!
