MMM: Making money from Maggots



Introduction to maggot :-

   We all know that flies produce maggots and flies always prefers to lay their eggs on things that makes their offsprings to have access to rich and enough food. In which when the larvae hatch into Maggot ,they have enough to feast on, inside the dark shell ,they transformed from mushy mass to a fully formed insects and in a week or so ,the maggot will emerge from the pupal casing as hairy ,bug-eye flies and scamper off to mate. The easiest way for maggot to digest their food is the ability they have to secrete fluid containing digestive enzymes.

   There are many importance of maggot, but for the purpose of this article, I will be limiting it to the topic:-.

        MAKING MONEY FROM MAGGOT.
  Tiny fish like sardines,herring and others are being used to produced feeds that were been used to feed pigs, chicken, ducks,ostriches,Guinea fowl etc.
There is a survey that was carried out in south Africa recently that discouraged them from using fishmeal to prepare feed for livestock, this is so because if they continue to be harvesting fish from the sea ,in some few years to come ,fish may not be  available to harvest again. This lead to the discovery of the potentials of maggots.

ILLUSTRATIONS

IF you established a maggot farm, a female soldier flies lays about 700 eggs ,this produced an army of Hungry maggots that chop down corpses or rotten food waste, with their endless appetite, they are endless eaters ,and with time ,the maggots reach pupa stage and ready to be harvested and processed into feed meal for animals.
I want you to understand that maggots are rich in protein and less economical in feeding livestock. In South Africa ,the maggots business is helping In solving the problem of high cost of soybeans and fishmeal, so instead of incurring that huge cost in Nigeria, Nigeria entrepreneurs are investing in maggot feeds and they are making huge amount in it...

  I also want you to know that maggot business is not yet popular in Nigeria presently, that is why you should start now. For instance ,50kg bag of poultry feed may cost #8000 with production cost of #6500 ,which mean your profit is around #1500 but if it is maggots feed ,your production cost may be as low as nothing and your profit may be around #4000 on every 50kg..

     Therefore, any time you see maggot around wasting,remind yourself how much you can be generating from it. In next article, we will examine processing maggots for feedmeal

  10. That was a hard one for me to read. The "M" word is one I not only can't hear with out instantly wanting to get sick (do to childhood trauma from finding a body as a child), but apparently just seeing the word has the same effect on me... I think it takes a special person to do this for a living. I for one am not that person...lol! Very informative article, I did learn something new today.
