So I am going to assume that it is because of the rain. My wife just sent me these pictures of my BSF bin. I tell ya don't ever let people tell you that they can only climb up a 30 to 40 degree angle again. Mine defy gravity!!!
Yes sir once I get my aquaponics going they will be fush food. But for now the are my very very nasty children that help with an overabundance of rabbit and goat crap.
Cody- it didnt fill it up but it did get very wet inside the bin. They normally do this when it rains but not normally this many of them. The picture of them on the ground is at least 20 feet away from the bin!!! But if at least half of them pupate we will for sure have the population replenished.
As for the bin.... it works so I am happy eith it for now but I plan to make 4 new ones by spring that are about half the size and a better ramp for self harvesting. Also I am hoping it will be easier to harvest the frass. I am going to feed that to the worms.
Hey Cody do you know if the wirms that we have around the area that are indigenous are red wigglers?

Wow. Well dang. I was hoping I could just collect alot of those and use them for composting.

Thanks bud. I really appreciate it.
As a side note I am running out of room for compost in my BSF bin So I am going to screen all of ut and collect most of them and give them to my dad to feed to his chickens. I will post pictures when I do it.
Have a blessed day!
