Traditional use of fly larvae by small poultry farmers in Benin

A survey among traditional poultry farmers shows that 5.7% of them produce house fly larvae to feed their poultry

Abstract

House fly larvae are a suitable and sustainable source of protein for poultry in Africa, but their traditional use in family farming has never been demonstrated and quantified. A large survey among traditional poultry farmers in Benin shows that on the average, 5.7% of them produce house fly larvae to feed their poultry.
