(Philadelphia, PA, USA)
I recently started composting both dog poop and food waste in an outdoor worm bin. After a few months, I found what I originally thought were maggots in my bin but came to find out they were actually Black Soldier Flies (BSF). In doing some research, I determined that BSF can out compete the worms and should be picked out (something not so pleasant in a bin full of dog poop). The larvae just keep coming back though and so I was wondering how to prevent BSF in my worm bin? The worms seem to be doing fine. Should I just stop worrying about the BSF?
