so im experimenting with a bsfl farm, but its coming into fall right now and im having trouble finishing the life cycle, i bought some grubs and put them in a bin with compost scraps, they were eating vigorously but now have gone pupae so the activity is done i believe they are alive but dormant, i would like to know if anyone has experience with the lifecycle on these little guys, their home is currently in a greenhouse that is behind a structure so mostly shaded, im thinking to try and make a fly tent over the top of the tub with a clear plastic bag and to get the heat back up by buying a second set of grubs that will eat and heat does anyone know if that will be enough heat for enough time to get the next generation hatched? or do i need to completely rethink this plan also im counting on ambient light being enough do i need to set up lighting, cause that would be alot more complicated to get (im trying to avoid running power out to their home)
 
It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
