BLACK SOLDIER FLY
Hermetia illucens (Linnaeus, 1758) is commonly known as “soldier ﬂy” (Black Soldier Fly) and belongs to the Stratiomyidae family. This species is possibly native to America (Kovac & Rozkosny, 1995) but because of anthropic activity it has spread throughout the humid and subtropical tropical regions of the planet (James, 1935). In Europe this species was registered for the ﬁrst time in Malta in 1926, and since then it has been cited in other countries of the Mediterranean area, such as Albania, Croatia, France, Italy, southern Switzerland, Portugal and Spain (Martínez-Sanchéz et al. ., 2011). In the Iberian Peninsula, H. illucens was registered for the ﬁrst time in 1954 in Spain, and in Portugal in 1995 (Martínez-Sánchez et al., 2011).
The larvae of this species have an essentially elongated shape (0.85 to 30 mm) with a tapered anterior end and a rounded posterior shape. The tegument is whitish to darker, and strongly sclerotized according to age (Müller, 1925). Larvae can develop in a wide variety of organic matter, from manure and decaying meat, to fruits and vegetables. They cross six larval stages, and in their last phase, they sclerotize and adopt a dark color, until forming a black and motionless pupa.

FOR THE FUTURE
The increase in world population leads to the urgent need for additional supplies of protein from sustainable sources for inclusion in animal feed.entomo agroindustrial
Europe imports 70% of its protein needs, it is known as "protein deﬁcit”entomo agroindustrial
The European Union generates 88 million tons of biodegradable organic waste and up to 1.4 million tons of manure each year.entomo AgroIndustrial
Insects are a source of valuable nutrients for animal feed, with high content of fat, protein, vitamins, ﬁber and with a very signiﬁcant concentration of minerals.entomo agroindustrial
Fly larvae can reduce the mass of organic waste up to 60% in 10 days.entomo AgroIndustrial
We enable the transformation of by-products and waste from the agro industry using insects.entomo AgroIndustrial
