Black soldier fly larvae don't move
They're in my bin, and some of them move, but for the most part, as soon as I turn over the compost and find a few, they stay completely still. Even when I fork them out onto the ground - nothing. Poke them with the fork? Nothing.
Some of them are starting to turn dark, which I guess means they're getting ready to turn into flies, and even those act totally comatose. Is it possible that they're really dead? Or are they just lazy? I'm only asking because I've stopped putting any greens into the bin so that I'm not feeding them anything. I want compost, not BSFL poop, and I don't want all my greens reduced into nothing before they have a chance to break down. So the sooner they die or pupate, the sooner I can start feeding the pile again.
