How To Raise Larvae on Food Scraps to Feed Livestock

External News Details

Black soldier fly larvae devour food waste and other organic matter and are made of 60% protein. But they’re increasingly dying before they reach livestock facilities as animal feed. Researchers, recognizing the culprit is the collective heat generated when the maggots eat in crowded conditions, have found that delivering the right amount of airflow could help solve the overheating issue. A study with those findings, published in Frontiers in Physicsis co-authored by David Hu, professor in the Georgia W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering with a joint appointment in the School of Biological Sciences; and Daniel Goldman, professor in the School of Physics
