Hey LV, you probably have to be careful who you tell and with what level of excitement.
Remember not everyone is like us and people may look at you funny if you go getting all excited at the sight of maggots. Just keep that in mind. :crazy:

Well LV it would be worth you having a pod, my home made job is loaded with eggs finally,
Faye how many times have you said they are not maggots :dunno: you even convinced my Mrs they weren't maggots, now if you tell I have maggots in the freezer I will be in big :swear: :D she is actually excited about the new activity in the pod, just have to make sure she only sees the harvested result and not the internal workings 8-)

Depends who I am talking to PK as to how I say it. I have this little saying, for the purpose of the excercise- eg we will not use the word maggot, because it congers up negative vibes. They are actually a maggot when they are cream and feeding, the pupae are what you have in the freezer. (PUPA)
Maggot is another name for larva, Larvae-plural.
Like when we are talking to housewives (or anyone that gets attached or squeamish) and can't bear to kill or eat the fish, we use the word harvest.

She's not gunna like it when it goes through a putrid stage either, as they do on occasion...

Well as written in BYAP, I have to agree with EB (i don't think that has happened before :dunno: ) I had a reasonable harvest of BSF and was going through the putrid stage and pod was taken over by the green flies, not a good thing in sheep country, my pod has been sacked, main reasons;
1) the smell, pong was taking over the beer shed, this is totally unacceptable, even the cat isn't allowed near the beer shed :wink:
2) I think the predominant fly will win the battle, I had an assortment of maggots in the pod
3) feed, as only 2 of us at home these days we hardly get enough scraps for the chooks and worm farm, I get heaps more benefit out of the chooks and worm farm and the fish will have to eat pellets and CD's big bag of frozen BSF larvae
I think if you were confident BSF were all you were going to get and you have a use for them, yes it is worth it, as I had to introduce BSF before I got pod working I feel the BSF will never win out in the short term, if you were going to experiment I would suggest to build your own pod before lashing out almost $400, maybe a proper pod would have been better for me but again it took ages to establish BSF, I may try the pod again a couple of years down the track and see if BSF have taken to Narrogin

I was pulling BSF larvae out of worm farm on the weekend, fed them to my Jade Perch. They didn't seem too keen at first, got into them eventually.

So I'll still be getting one for myself and any larvae will go to the aquaponics and chooks when I get them.

I can get one for $279 pickup from Circle3.

LV - ask them if there is a discount if you buy 2. If a reasonable discount I'll get one also if you want.

What, you agree with me Nocky? :lol:

Yeah, we haven't got them back in again at the shop, my conscience just can't deal with it, for the price they are, compared with what they produce. I guess for novely factor they are ok, plus some areas they will perform better depending on climate.

When are you planning to buy Tony? Is certainly tempting. Although I still think they are a massive rip-off, I am very keen to convert to having no wet waste at all coming from my household. This would mean no need for platic bags or anything to put garbage in, just chuck the dry stuff straight from a kitchen bin into the wheely bin.

I'm ready to order now veggie boy, so I'd like to get mine in the next week or so.
