BioPod Composting

This is a terrific method if you have a lot of food scraps. Please watch the videos below. This method uses the black soldier fly. Do not be put off by the word "fly" because the black soldier fly has none of the characteristics of common houseflies that irritate us so. These are amazing creatures and probably the fastest way to compost food scraps.

Good you tube explanation

Quick video, no sound, just grubs eating kitchen scraps. The grubs of the black soldier fly can eat food scraps so quickly it will amaze you.
