So the cabinet just has a couple of ramps inside to lead to each drawer? That is really cool!

Drawer with the morning wormsThis is not a BSF but Stuart near the topm of the mountainThis is a bucket bin my first WWOOfer made and we could never attract a fly.  Now it produces good.  We painted the bottle blck so the larvae is not irratated by the light

I took this idea off the internet.  this was to feed chickens . The ramp is just an old piece of plastic fencing with a bucket hanging on it.  We now put a tarp over it because as my friend syas these animals don't want to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  It still produces good.Ok Molly nThis is my best one yet.  Inside you put the food and the BSF comes and lays eggs.  When the larvae mature they craw up the same fencing material and fall into the drawers that are now open.  This is all recycled material.  Only paid for screws to put it together

Hi Molly Well it didn'T work as a BSFL .  I am going to reconvert it to a composting wom bin.  I will post some pictures of my successful BSFL bind and how I am harvesting them.  It is pretty Interesting.  We get over 1 lb of larvae each morning if we work it right.  I have been experimenting for about 8 months and have found a way that I hope will work all year.  It is not what one would call really cold here but in winter the worms slow down as temps get down to 52 F at night and takes a little time to warm up.  But I hope to change that this winter.  I'LL get those pictures up with explaination.

Hi Rachel,

What did you do to implement a self-harvesting ramp?
