Soil - I would really love to read a tutorial on how you raise crop after crop of those black solider flies? Everything I've found so far just talks about containing and feeding while they grow, but how to you secure adults for the next generation, and how to do many it all in winter? Maybe you could start a new thread.....

Bait - you mean like a pile of kitchen scraps and soon (before the raccoons get it) you see little BSF maggots? In winter around here most everything stops growing - sigh.....
Do you have a link for those plans?
i have never had a problem with raccoons before, but there not that bad around here. the bins can be constructed to keep the bigger creatures out.
if you google black soldier fly bin you will get at least a dozen different designs. i just suggest going through and seeing which works best for you, or which one has the most parts you have laying around. even though i have one now that works i am going to be building a better one this winter in hopes to process a lot more BSF next year.
