Insect Breeding: The Natural Way

Insect Breeding: The Natural Way

General

Amusca is the Musca Domestica specialist. We are passionate about discovering new qualities of this industrious insect. Based on indepth research, knowledge of the genetics and patiently applying selection processes we develop Musca strains that deliver superior results for our clients.

During our breeding processes we e are quite aware about our responsibility towards our natural environment. We use breeding methods that are close to natural circumstances and are not GMO.

Amusca provides each module with a Musca Domestica population. Amusca develops a specialised variety of Musca Domestica, so enabling you to enhance the quantity and quality of the insect larvae.

Our main reasons for choosing the housefly

The choice of the housefly has been well-thought-out and is based on years of continuous research. We compared the housefly to many insect alternatives, including the Black Solder Fly. But none of these insects could deliver such rich proteins as efficiently as the Musca Domestica. This is why we selected the Musca Domestica as our preferred production insect:

  • Accepted native insect all over the world
  • Short (4 days) growth cycle makes high levels of production possible
  • Perfect Amino Acid profile
  • Temperature flexible during egg laying process
  • Loads of scientific research
  • Energy neutral, no heat required at the start of the growth cycle
  • Excellent insect for mass production of insects

Researching Insects for optimal Poultry Feed

Amusca embarked in 2017 in a project that will in the near future lead to special insects that are a rich in energy and healthy for poultry. Combining genetic features of the Musca Domestica with the right insect feed leads to promising results. We expect market introduction in 2019.

Researching Insects for optimal Aquaculture Feed

Our special insects bred for the aquaculture industry are a rich in proteins  and low in fat.

Amusca embarked in 2017 in a project that will in the near future lead to special insects that are even richer in proteins  and low in fat.  Combining genetic features of the Musca Domestica with the right insect feed leads to promising results. We expect market introduction in 2019.
