    I haven't been able to find anyone online that seems trustworthy so far that will sell me less than like 500 or 1,000 ----and honestly that just is more than I can afford to spend :( ---so the cheaper the better since its the 4th and im already almost out of my spending money for this month :( but im hoping the small order can be done affordably :) 352 423 3666 is my cell

    well I found a place I ordered 2 small batches (125) from and the entire order 80% of which is shipping should be here Thursday ---guess il let ya know if they arrive alive and suvive --etc etc

    ow and on a sidenote :) I guess il have some larvae too resell eventually :) dirt cheap if anyone else is interested in black soldier flies I can share the order info where I got mine --if im happy with their ability to get them here reasonably well

    Chaos, if you build one of those soldier fly larvae things like they show on youtube the flies will come to the road kill in the bucket themselves and lay their eggs so you will have the larvae for FREE!!! No need to order them. On the other hand, if they spray the neighborhoods for mosquitoes in your area it will probably kill flies or any other flying/crawling thing too so then you wouldn't have the "wild" flies to come and lay their eggs. If you build one of the bucket breeder things you will want to have it quite a ways from your house as it will SMELL. Your chickens will like the larvae though. :)

    well the Black Soldier Flies arrived today and I put them into my BSF harvester --then I looked at a calendar =---apparently im going to be leaving for a trip the day im thinking they'll pupate out and become flies ----ow well good thing I built the creened cage to put around it today while I was waiting for them ------hopefully they'll all breed and lay eggs while im in the caribeen ---guess better grab a big bag of food for them to munch on while im burning myself at the pool for a few days-----guess ill let yall know more about them when I get back from the trip

    ow on sidenote ---in the delivery one actually pupated out into a fly while being mailed to me ---so I got one lonely adult--I put it on a bush by the garage and am hoping t survives and makes babies somehwe in the neighborhood
