The Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) larvae (BSFL) are a highly nutritious insect quickly becoming a popular staple food source for a variety of pets and livestock. Our nutritional analysis has shown our BSF larvae to contain about 40% protein and 30% fat.
These insects have a high calcium to phospohorous ratio (6:1), which is an important metabolic element for the proper growth and development of all vertebrates. Calcium also assists in bone growth, nerve function and egg development.
Our BSF larvae are sent whilst they are transitioning from larvae (white colouration) to pre-pupae (brown/black colouration).
Suited food for: Some Reptiles, Poultry, Amphibians and Fish
