Lots of BSF happy in our insectarium
Our new Pupae bin. Big enough to contain the pupae and conveniently stored in the insectarium. Every morning we open the bin for hundreds of BSF
to take their first flight….
BSF mating by egg collectors
BSF mating by the sunny side of the insectarium in the morning…
Our BSF insectarium is now getting filled with flies and we collect 4 grams of eggs per day… We aim to reach 10 gram next week !!!
Humidity is at 70-80% in the insectarium and temperature is around 30 degrees Celsius, ideal for BSF egg laying….
Our 5 months old chicken are starting to lay eggs …. finally ! Seem happy to be doing it….
We ordered 200 new chickens and will build our next super chicken coop in may…
Kalawili has started a program in El Nido to reduce organic wastes, mostly food wastes from restaurants (but this could eventually be extended to human wastes) using black soldier flies larvaes.
Every day, trucks and our own top down collect food from participating El Nido and Lio Beach restaurants (Coco, Glow, Shaka …) and deliver it to our food sorting station.
The Black Soldier Flies (BSF) larvaes are contained in specially designed bins at Kalawili and will digest food for about 15 days before completing their larvae cycle and leave the bins to become pupae and later on turn into flies.
In the Kalawili BSF insectarium, BSF will spend 5 days mating and laying eggs which will be collected every day and put into new larvae bins.
Today we had 2 special guests, Noa from Spain and Ruby from China who were willing to get their hands and feet dirty to plant a durian and frangipani trees.
We now have a total of 5 large worm bins.. 3 new ones next to the chicken coop.
Our new green house … the first of 3 to be built soon.
Our dragon fruit farm is finally taking shape …
The plant nursery and worm farm are taking shape now. So far one worm bin done
and worms were transported safely.
Pond is filling nicely … with ducks !
