Due to our climate, breeding black soldier flies can only be done indoors, in a controlled environment (except in summer). Still, with the help of the Grinsect breeding kits, you can do it in your home. Our toolkits are optimized for the needs and instincts of the black soldier fly, so you can efficiently maximize your home-scale production under the right environmental conditions.

  • Ideally, your breeding area should have a ceiling height of at least 2.5 m,
  • The space requirement for the beginner breeding kit is at least 20 m2 of enclosed space with a cleanable floor (this includes the extra space required for incubation and pupation),
  • Providing adequate natural light is key to successful breeding, but maintaining ideal temperature (~28 degrees) and humidity (min. 55-60%) is essential in black soldier fly breeding.

With providing the necessary environmental requirements, a daily production capacity of 20-25 kg of live larvae per day can be achieved with a beginner breeding toolkit. This product is recommended for those new to breeding or who want to produce a few kilos daily.

When ordering a beginner breeding toolkit, you will find the following items in the box:

  • 4 pcs size M Lovecage: An essential tool for black soldier fly breeding, as the mating and controlled ovipositioning take place here.
  • 2 pcs Darkcage: The final stage of metamorphosis occurs in this darkened tool: after pupation, the black soldier flies reach adult form and are ready to emerge and mate in the Lovecage.
  • 4 pcs Fly Hive: As an essential tool in the Lovecage, it has two functions: to collect eggs and provide water for the flies. Using it contributes to reducing the mislaid eggs rate to below 5%.
  • +1 complimentary Lovecage net

The breeding toolkits do not include the starter breeding stock or the rearing crates, but you can also get them from our webshop.

Starter breeding stock

To see the results of your work quickly, we recommend 1-2 liter pupae as starter stock along with the breeding toolkit.

Rearing crate

Are you looking for a small-scale production to start with, or want to get maximum performance immediately? A beginner breeding toolkit requires 120-170 rearing crates. These crates take up an additional 15-20 m2 of space.
