Beta Bugs on the Road

The Beta Bugs team had a fantastic couple of days in Birmingham at the British Pig & Poultry Fair, educating attendees about the many benefits of insect farming.

The team were delighted to meet so many people interested in our fantastic industry and were overwhelmed by the response and enthusiasm of attendees at this year’s British Pig & Poultry Fair!

We were busy delivering information across the two days about the insect farming industry as a whole and why you should diversify into this sustainably driven industry, which made for some very interesting conversations and connections.

Leveraging sustainable genetic technologies
.

Leveraging Sustainable Genetic Technologies to Improve the Black Soldier Fly

The BSF industry is currently focused on improving technologies for waste handling, cheaper and more efficient rearing processes, optimization of diets, product extraction methods and more. Implementing genetic programs in BSF facilities, including selective breeding and genetic engineering, offer a repertoire of solutions to optimize the bioreactor itself – the BSF. The importance of managing genetic diversity for the long-term viability and productivity of BSF colonies is becoming more and more prevalent in the scientific community. Here, we will review how selective breeding and genetic engineering can play a key role in the BSF InsectTech. Specifically, we will present the potential, challenges, and recent breakthroughs in employing these two solutions in the BSF industry.
