Looking for an ecological way to get rid of organic scraps? Or to grow live feed for your fish, chickens or other animals? Black Soldier Fly (BSF) larvae are just the thing! And the ProtaPod is designed to cultivate them on a commercial scale.
Put your food scraps or other organic material into the ProtaPod. The BSF adults lay eggs in the decaying organic matter. The eggs hatch and the grubs/larvae eat the organic material until they reach a certain stage of maturity, in the process breaking it down to what is essentially compost and compost-tea. At this point of their development, they move up the exit ramps and drop down the exit chute into whatever receptacle you've placed under it to catch them. Ta-da! Self-harvesting fish food! How good is that!
They are now ready to go to your fish, your chickens, or whatever other use you have planned for them. Throw a handful into a fish tank or chicken run and watch them disappear!
To maintain your local population of BSF, you need to let some of the larvae go into the ground to develop into more adults, so sprinkle a handful of them out somewhere safe, every now and then.
