An essential tool for breeding, where mating and controlled ovipositioning in the Fly hive takes place. The Lovecage netting helps to improve lighting efficiency thanks to its excellent light transmission. The manipulation hole allows the Darkcage to be attached to the device. On the other hand, the zipped opening helps to install the Fly Hive in the Lovecage or change the egg trap.

Fly hive

An essential accessory of the Lovecage, with a complex role. The upper tray is responsible for watering the flies, while the attractant-filled bottom tray with the aroma-treated egg traps is necessary for successful, controlled egg laying. The device is optimized for the instincts of the flies, reducing the mislaid to 5%.


A breeding technology tool in which the final stage of metamorphosis takes place and after pupation, the black soldier fly emerges in its final form. The Darckcage helps to ensure that the flies mating in the Lovecage are the same age.
