My chickens would be delighted if I could figure out how to grow
maggots for them. I thought maybe one of these days, I'd get over my
squimishness and try some experiments--then I read Misha's post. Maybe
I'll concentrate on tomato worms, grasshoppers, soy beans, etc. instead.
Then I read Riaan's post about someone growning maggots for fish
food. Then Loren quoted his grandfather talking about "limberneck" in
chickens and Holly reported (among other things) feeding them to chickens
successfully and Cecile also reported letting her chickens eat them with
no ill effects.
And, now I can add a bit to the discussion; about insecticidal
nematodes, ARBICO (www.usit.net.BICONET) supplies them. Most likely there
are lots of other places that also sell them.) We tried them
unsuccessfully for termites then later talked to a pest control expert
who had successfully used them in other parts of the state but found they
didn't work with our soils. I don't think we were able to keep the soil
moist enough for them.
I'm facinated with the wealth of ideas and information on this
list! Thanks for being there...
