What are Black Soldier Fly Larvae? 

Black Soldier Flies (Hermetia illucens) are a small, black fly that is often mistaken for a wasp. Their larvae are common in compost piles.   

Due to their ability to process food waste and reduce greenhouse gases, BSFL are seen as an environmentally-friendly way to produce high-protein animal feed. They have been named a sustainable solution to the problems of aquaculture by Forbes magazine and are seen as an option for many other animal feeds, including dog food and cat food, according to The Washington Post.
