Enter the ducks. Firstly, they hunt flies. Which is already awesome.
Our animals have already added a whole new layer of efficiency to our recycling system, and it fills me with so much excitement that I'm shaking as I type this. Ok. That's the coffee.
Previous system: Food waste-- Worms--- worm castings--- trees. Not too bad. But a pretty short cycle.
Food waste (usually freshish fruit and vegetable scraps)-- guinea pigs (then, what they don't eat in a couple of hours)-- Ducks (then, what they haven't eaten by evening) -- Worm bin (then... and this is super cool-- the soldier fly larvae come and start eating stuff before the worms, which creates a pretty good physical split in the bin between my much loved worms, which I don't want the ducks to eat, and soldier fly larvae, who I DO want the ducks to eat)-- ducks-- back into worm bin(worm castings)-- trees
