What a pleasant surprise to be greeted by some over wintering larvae! These hardy souls have been kicking it in this flat of compost and soil waiting for their time to emerge. I put the flat there next to the Biopod thinking it might be a good place for them to crawl out and land. Since the greenhouse doesn’t have any soil, just some empty benches, I put some potted plants and this flat inside to give them somewhere to go.
Well, they went there! And they’re still in there! The warmer temps have given them reason to rise and I’m looking forward to having some adults around. While I’m hopeful the very young larvae that are in the Biopod are BSFL, it appears we’ll have another crack at trying to induce sexy time and get some more babies.
