Black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens) can be raised on various organic waste materials and require less water than soybeans. The larvae’s waste, or frass, can be used as an organic fertilizer. And black soldier flies don’t bite or transmit disease.
And, when used for animal feed, insects have a more nutritious amino acid composition than soybeans. (Public domain image)
