Rearing Black Soldier Fly to Supplement Natural Populations in Waste Composting Systems
This review discusses the literature review methodology, its aims, and the methods used to achieve this aim. Expand
Sensory morphology, investment and plasticity in the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens)
It is found that lower larval densities resulted in larger antennae suggesting that this species predicts future environmental conditions based on larval rearing conditions and adapt their adult morphology to maximise fitness. Expand
Influence of diet on black soldier fly (hermetia illucens linnaeus) (diptera: stratiomyidae) life history traits
Diet was found to affect black soldier fly development with respect to time to reach particular stages of development, length, weight and mortality at different stages ofDevelopment, and it is recommended that black soldierFly larval diet should be high in fat and energy content. Expand
Evaluation of Development Datasets for Hermetia illucens (L.) (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) for Estimating the Time of Placement of Human and Swine Remains in Texas, USA
A need for detailed, forensic-based development data for the black soldier fly that can reliably and accurately be used in casework is highlighted and a basic understanding of the timing of resource utilization is outlined so that reasonable corrections may be made to TOC as related to minimum postmortem interval (mPMI) estimates. Expand
Molecular identification and life cycle of Black Soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) in laboratory
The sequencing result and phylogenetic analysis of BSF showed 99-100% similarity with H. illucens from GenBank, and the mature larval weight (0.20±0.03 g) was highest among other developmental stages. Expand
Valorisation of Organic Waste By-Products Using Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) as a Bio-Convertor
One third of food produced globally is wasted. Disposal of this waste is costly and is an example of poor resource management in the face of elevated environmental concerns and increasing foodExpand
Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) Meal as a Promising Feed Ingredient for Poultry: A Comprehensive Review
This review emphasizes the significance of this insect as a “green” technology in the extremely variable recycling of organic waste and generates a sustainable protein source as well as the importance of its use as a substitute of protein-rich feedstuff in poultry feed manufacturing. Expand
Black soldier fly from pest to ‘crown jewel’ of the insects as feed industry: an historical perspective
An historical overview of the black soldier fly is given and how the appreciation of the insect developed from being harmful to beneficial. The change occurred in 1980, initially for their role in ...
The puzzling mitochondrial phylogeography of the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens), the commercially most important insect protein species
The black soldier fly community is urged to apply molecular characterization (genotyping) of the fly strains used in artificial fly-breeding and share these data in research publications as well as when sharing cultures, to reconstruct the recent invasion history of the species. Expand
