Frequently Asked Questions

About Dried Black Soldier Fly Larvae

What animals can I feed the dried larvae to?


Our dried larvae can be fed to insectivores such as most small mammals (e.g. dogs, cats, rodents), some bird species (e.g. songbirds, chickens), reptiles, and some fish species (e.g. Betta, Koi, Snakehead, Arowana, etc).




How much/often should I feed the dried larvae to my pets?


It is recommended that the dried larvae make up either 10-20% of their daily meals or as a full meal by itself once every 2-4 weeks.




I've tried to feed my pet some dried larvae, but they don't seem to like it. What do I do?


Your little furry/scaly/feathery friend might not be accustomed to the taste of our dried larvae! Just like oysters, coffee, and durian, our dried Black Soldier Flies might be an acquired taste. Try sneaking some larvae into their meals or snacks (e.g. covering some dried larvae with their favourite peanut butter or canned food) and they should get used to the taste soon!





About Black Soldier Fly Larvae Organic Fertiliser

How much fertiliser should I use, and how often should I use it?


Our general recommendation is to sprinkle a thin layer over your soil for large plants once a week. Water as per normal. For small to medium-sized plants, sprinkle 2-4 tablespoons of our organic fertiliser on top of the soil once a week. Water as per normal.




What type of plants benefit from this organic fertiliser?


Generally, our organic fertiliser is useful for all plant types. However, leafy green vegetables and fruit-bearing plants do greatly benefit from its NPK ratio. The term, "NPK ratio", refers to the ratio of nitrogen to phosphorus to potassium levels in the fertiliser. For optimal plant growth, enthusiasts compare NPK ratios to maximise the specific element (N, P and/or K) for their specific plant species. As for their specific nutritional benefits: Nitrogen - Thicker and wider leaves, stronger stems. Phosphorus - Involved in key plant functions, such as photosynthesis and conversion between sugar and starch. Potassium - Involved in key plant functions, such as protein, starch and energy production within the plant.
