After few years of research on this topic and 6 months of product development, we now can proudly bring to you the most energy efficient black soldier fly breeding light product developed by EVO BSF Consortium. It has been tested within the consortium as well as by some non-member associates, and we have confirmed this product is effective to all populations we tested. Now we are more than happy to share this knowledge and product with you.

The 1000-Watt quartz iodine lamp (QIL) is the most prevalently used light source in the breeding industry today, and it can be replaced by a 150-Watt of our breeding LED. We can compare the operational cost of using each product considering both the cost of the lamp itself as well as the electricity consumption. 1000-Watt QIL is widely available at USD$10 each piece, and each lamp can last effective up to 6 months. Our 150-Watt LED is costing $390, and can last effective up to 2 years. Considering the electricity cost $0.15 USD per kWh (could be higher in many countries), and running lights 8 hrs per day, both lights will cost pretty much the same after first year. Going into the second year, however, the LED will save 40% over the whole time because only need to invest in the lamp once.
This is just a comparison on the cost side. If considering the LED is safer to operate, and can induce more egg fertilization, the benefits of using our LED could be even more.
However, it should be noted that light source is just one factor contributing to breeding success, and there are many other factors that's more or less important, such as temperature, humidity, and pupa quality, etc.
