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.

"I have grown some beaut Black jacks, but they require too much care. I love the sound of these Tromboncino's. I am gradually replacing difficult to grow plants with virtual weeds, and perennials."

Dave Riley replied to Megan's discussion First Tromboncino harvest today.
"The fruits have to get very large and such before you'll get useable seeds. They form in the nodule at the end of the pendulum. As they age on the vine, the skin toughens and changes to yellow as the zucchini metamorphasizes into a Butternut…"

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.

 

What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
