Never seen them in our composter either, but they are reportedly great.

The larvae are 42% protein, 34% lipids(fats), contain amino acids, minerals, and high in calcium making them excellent feed for chickens, frogs, geckos, snakes, lizards, fish, etc. The fly larvae have roughly the same value as Menhaden fish meal valued at over $1,200 per ton.The fly larvae go through 5 instars or stages. It takes 102 - 105 hours for the eggs to hatch. It will only take 2 weeks for the soldier grubs to reach maturity under ideal conditions. The larvae are so tough, it takes 2 hours for them to die when submerged in rubbing alcohol. If food is slack, the larvae will hibernate whereas worms will simply die.

Yeah I am serious about eating them. I am grossed out by the idea but I have to try it.

News regarding their toughness: The compost pile got flooded during the insane rains two days ago. Found out 24 hours later and they were swimming around underwater and most were still alive.

Seems this thread has made an abrupt turn. I predict in about three or four more posts, it will be full on homo.

I hear wheel bugs will stab the F out of you.

I have seen them down here just a few times, and was told not to pick it up.
