When it comes to raising backyard chickens, we all want the best for our flock. Here’s why you should switch to a FLYGRUBS supplemented diet and stop feeding your chickens dried mealworms.
Before we begin. FLYGRUBS are Dried Hermetia Illucens aka dried black soldier fly larvae.
From the Profs
Studies have shown that animals fed BSFL show reductions of E.coli 0157:H7 and Salmonella Enterica. Lauric Acid makes up over half of the 'Black Soldier Fly Larva's’ fat content. This is what we call “good fat.” It has strong antimicrobial properties to help prevent and fight bacterial and other infections. Mealworms do not contain Lauric Acid.
BSFL are very efficient decomposers of organic waste thus making them super beneficial to the environment. FLYGRUBS are raised on untreated traceable food waste. Mealworms are picky and only eat food that has been treated to reduce moisture levels. They are inefficient.
All our BSF larvae are a sustainable source of protein, calcium and healthy fat for livestock, ducks, fish, turtles and bird feeders. Mealworms are not sustainable.
Mealworms cannot directly consume a lot of water and they basically only eat grain byproducts (which in many countries humans actually eat, such as wheat bran and the like). This means they compete with humans for the same resources. It also means they indirectly consume a large amount of water since these grain byproducts had a large share of the irrigation water.
Mealworms are a good source of protein. FLYGRUBS are a good source of protein, calcium, antioxidants, and healthy fats. They do not compete with humans for food. They do quite the opposite. They consume the food waste that humans produce.
FLYGRUBS don't require dusting with calcium powder as they are naturally a good source for calcium. Mealworms do!
FLYGRUBS are a healthy, smart, and inexpensive option to regularly supplement your pet’s diet. Your family and friends will taste the difference and the Earth will thank you!
