Why have black soldier fly stopped producing?

Hi BLFers, hoping someone can help me with this. I had a pretty good black soldier fly breeding method going for the past few months. I would leave my kitchen scraps outside overnight then put them in the worm farm and was getting a good qty of BSF larvae daily for feeding quail. About 4 wks ago this suddenly stopped. It was still hot when it stopped so I dont think it was temperature related. Do BSF have a breeding season or has something else happened? Thanks, Megan.
