I've been doing some research about alternative feed. some studies show duckweed; I think that Moringa Oleifera leaves are the best.The leaves are very rich with a balance diet, It's a tree that grows in tropical and subtropical climate easy to maintain and within 6 Months of planting you can start harvesting the leaves.
I would like to hear your thought in that one.
Easy! I plan on outsourcing to kids for a nickel each cricket.
Crickets are probably easy to breed too. Although i have no idea. You often see them at pet stores.
I've read about breeding crickets but I don't think I would want that in my house. I think I would want an outbuilding before going there.
While I like the biopod and BSF and their larva. I won't claim that if you put roadkill into a biopod that it won't stink. The BSF larva if going strong might take care of it quickly but the BSF bin does have a pong of it's own.
How do you add better drainage? Drill holes in the bottom?
But even if it's pretty dry and not clay like, you add a dead raccoon into a bin that size it will stink for a bit until the larva manage to eat it. The bin isn't big enough to add enough material to cover something like that to stop it stinking. This would be why most carcases larger than a fish wind up in my Hot compost pile.
Here is a similar example of what I made for mine from the Black Soldier Fly Blog:
here is the original post:
BioPods unless really really well maintained won't be able to handle a raccoon, but if you build something larger like the Bug Barracks I think it might be fine w one:
that's next up on my list of things to build
