Waste Not, Want Not, Part II
Will Black Soldier Fly grubs in biopods be the worm bins of the future?

Last week, I wrote a post about municipal efforts to cope with dog waste. Today, the Green Inc. column in The New York Times takes up the conversation with a story about a poop-composting pilot program in Ithaca, N.Y. Unfortunately, Ithaca's "strategy" involves a growing pile of yard clippings, wood trimmings and poop in biodegradable collection bags made from corn. Exactly, what to do with the pile is unclear. While this appears to be serious case of putting the pile before horse, the reader comments are filled with constructive and informed suggestions. I'm intrigued by the idea of deploying the Black Soldier Fly to do our dirty work. Will biopods filled with fly grubs be the worm bins of the future?
