Our initial studies have shown that wild birds prefer Black Soldier Fly grubs over mealworms. For bird lovers, that means more birds will visit their feeders. We want to continue to test wild birds’ preference for Black Soldier Flies, and you can help.
We’re looking for Preference Partners in select locations across Canada and the U.S. If you’re interested in conducting a wild bird preference study with EnterraGrubs™, fill out the form.
Calcium is critically important to keeping a bird’s bones strong and the shells of their eggs thick. Black Soldier Fly grubs, in addition to being high in protein, also have 50x more calcium than mealworms.
The grubs also have a better ratio of calcium to phosphorus. Phosphorus is important to the efficient absorption of calcium.
