Abstract

Females of Black Soldier Fly (BSF) play an important role in ensuring the sustainability of their generation in mass rearing program for the grassroot community. This study aims to evaluate effects of honey solution at different concentrations combined with fish waste on longevity and fecundity of BSF females. Females of BSF are maintained with 8 combination feed treatments. Each treatment is consisted of five repetitions and every single unit contains 10 pairs of BSF females. The results show females maintained with 10% honey solution combined with or without waste can live longer compared to other treatments. The lowest and highest egg weight was recorded to be 0.01 grams and 0.2 grams. The weight of laid eggs is affected by the number of surviving females. The highest weight of eggs was recorded on the 5th day after females hatched from pupae with a 3-day preoviposition period.
