Good to see other people taking advantage of all those free bugs! Soldier fly larvae are a good source of protein and grow well in most locations. Living in a jungle we are lucky in that we have large amounts of termites, ants, beetles, etc. that can be used for fish food. If you do a search for Microponics there's a good site in Oz that has a lot on raising bugs for food.
Here are some that I'm looking at using my self to catch bug...
Hope it helps...
It's sort of a gross process but these traps and non-toxic bait work like you wouldn't believe. I've fed the flies to chickens but not to fish yet. It comes with only one bait so you may as well buy more. I tried homemade bait only once and had no success. It starts off slowly but on the 3rd/4th day, the flies really swarm to it. Good luck.http://www.horse.com/item/victor-fly-trap-magnet-1-gal/BUA12/

I know this is an old thread, but I'm new to the forum so I thought I'd add to it. I've read that you can make a fly trap by cutting small holes into a plastic soda bottle.
Fly?....Hell no!...I'll raise maggots though. My problem with using wild stock is fear of contamination. You name it, they'll bring it. It might be a bother, but I still prefer to raise my own and have confidence when I eat. For in the long run, I eat what they eat.
