Black soldier fly larvae for organic waste bioconversion


Dr. Paul Olivier with Engineering, Separation and Recycling LLC in Louisiana shared resources on black soldier fly larvae on the U.S. Compost Countil List.... USCC.

Interestingly, he is author of.....

The Universe is One, Towards a Theory of Knowledge and Life by Paul A. Olivier http://www.amazon.com


A collection of resources on BSF were posted on USCC in June 2003:

Animal and Dairy Science at University of Georgia hosts a paper on BSF by Newton and Sheppard.

Soldier Fly Benefits: House Fly Control, Manure Volume Reduation, and Manure Nutrient Recycling G. L. Newton, D. C. Sheppard, S. A. Thompson, and S. I. Savage http://www.ads.uga.edu/annrpt/1995/95_311.htm

"A USDA Southern Region SARE/ACE grant (LS90-27, A Low Input Manure Management System in Animal Housing for House Fly Control, Waste Reduction and Feed Production) supported much of the research for this report."
