They are easy keep too. They can be kept alive for 2-3 weeks without the need to feed them. If you don't use them all in that time you can freeze them and use later. They don't smell and don't escape and you don't need to feed them.

Black Soldier Fly Larvae

the occasional visiting magpie is my audience - while I do see the occasional magpie snacking on larve, these larve are not as big a hit with the magpies compared my last purchase of mealworms, but there are definately many benefits with the larve; for example I can leave a whole tray out on top of the soil in pot plants on the balcony and the magpies eat some larve but do not overindulge - magpies will not finish a container of larve even after many days, maybe even more than a week, and these larvae do not escape which is also cool because my house was littered with the occasional mealworm escapee, but these larve are not as hardy as meal worms outside of the container they were shipped in, but to be fair I did not study how to keep them alive. I was able to dump the meal worms into the soil of pots plants on my balcony and throw some oats on top, but when I did the same with one of two containers, these larve died very quickly outside of plastic container they were shipped in, but I left the second container open on top of the soil and the larve in the second container are still alive and mostly uneaten after many days. I will still purchase both larve and meal worms just to mix things up for the magpies.
