Insect Technology

Insect Technology


Amusca’s starting point: it is important to treat people, animals and the environment with respect.  Our success depends on  healthy insects that live in an efficient and high-quality housing.

Our knowledge of insects inspired us to develop insect technology that enables you to introduce insect larvae in your business operations. Without the hassle of mass insect larvae breeding by outsourcing this specialized process to insect service provider Amusca.


More Benefits

Insect Breeding Module

The Amusca Insect Breeding Unit produces daily a mix of 5 tonnes of larvae, crude fibre and minerals. With the Amusca Insect Breeding module we offer you the possibility to produce insect larvae in a safe and stable way. The system is scalable and cost-effective, allowing you to run it with relatively limited investment.

The modular system consists of 40-feet High Cube (HC) containers. The adult flies live in these modules, producing eggs and larvae are reared.

Depending on your desired production capacity, more modules can be installed at any time, reducing your investment risk and payback time.

More about Premium Insect Breeding: The Natural Way

Feeding the larvae

Insects and in particular maggots are capable to convert organic co-products components into valuable nutrients finally resulting in high quality protein products. Most of these co-products are unfit for human or production-animal consumption, but are attractive as insect feed.

Feedstock from organic co-products therefor play an important role in insect nutrition. The variety of available feedstock is huge. Many feedstock are financially attractive and available in large quantities, in particular in urban areas.
