Hi Guys

I have put handfuls of sawdust in my bsf composting units to help dry it when too wet and the bsfl did ok with it. I have never tried a majority sawdust unit. I use sawdust and wood chip to get the bsf pupae to hatch.

If i created a pile of say sawdust, rabbit manure and grass/straw would BSFL help to compost it?

The bsfl would love the rabbit manure and probably help just a little with the grass/straw and sawdust. I'm not sure if they will make a meal out of the sawdust but guess they wouldn't mind it being there. You could always pass what's left through worms to finish it off.

BSF = Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia Illucens)

BSFL = Black Soldier Fly Larvae
