[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
Hermetia illucens, the black soldier fly, is a common and widespread fly of the family Stratiomyidae.

Human Relevance

The larvae and adults are considered neither pests nor vectors. Instead, black soldier fly larvae play a similar role to that of redworms as essential decomposers in breaking down organic substrates and returning nutrients to the soil.

Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) are an excellent source of sustainable protein for aquaculture, animal feed, and pet and human nutrition.[citation needed] The larvae have voracious appetites and can be used for composting household food scraps and agricultural waste products.
