The pupa is the adult stage of BSF larvae. At this stage, their bodies turn from dark brown to charcoal gray. At the same time, they will look for shady and safe places to initiate the pupal (cocoon) phase.
BSF Pupae (also known as Cocoon, BSFP, BSF Pupa) are the final stages of development of BSF larvae before they become adults (from 23 – 37 days old). At this stage, the BSF larvae replace their mouth with a hook-like structure. Their bodies also turn from dark brown to charcoal gray. At the same time, they will look for shady and safe places to initiate the pupal (cocoon) phase.
At this stage, the BSF larvae do not eat or drink but live on the nutrients accumulated from the larval stage. They do not appear to be active, but actually, at this stage, the pupae under the cocoon shell will grow very quickly to turn into an adult black soldier fly. Thanks to the very basic changes inside, it appears quiet and motionless on the outside, but after this stage, the black soldier fly emerging from the cocoon’s shell and converting from the pupa stage to the complete BSF.

With extremely high nutrient content, BSF Pupae are often purchased as bird feed, aquarium fish, pureed as flour, mixed in animal feed, as food for “Swiftlets”, the food source for swiftlets in Vietnam. However, BSF contains a lot of chitin, which will inhibit nutrient absorption. The chitin content increased over time.
Black Soldier Fly’s Chitosan is much purer and lower in heavy metals than conventional chitosan. It has a low polydispersity index. The molecular weight and degree of deacetylation are tunable. Chitosan used in pharmacuetical and biomedical industries.
