Flies Could Be Used as Feed
Mississippi State University's Insect Rearing Center received $100,000 from a Spanish scholar to create a building specifically for rearing black soldier flies.
The flies, native to the Southeast United States, could consume large amounts of waste while generating a feed product. They are not a known pathogen, do not bite or sting, and are not a nuisance, according to MSU researchers.
The flies are 40 to 45 percent protein by dry weight and consume agricultural waste. When dried and milled, they make high-protein meal for livestock, poultry and aquaculture consumption.
