Neither have we, but now we are convinced that insect farming holds the secret to a more sustainable future.

Option Highlights✅ Behind-the-scenes on how a young student chose to be an insect farmer✅ Get up close and personal with the heroes of the future - the black soldier flies✅ Expose children to the concept of sustainability and reducing food waste in a fun wayMore on InsecttaAt Insectta, Kai Ning dreams of a world where black soldier flies will solve our food waste problems. The greedy larvae of these flies that she raises gobble up food waste, and in return, poop out organic fertiliser of the highest quality. Larvae also becomes quality feed for livestock. One insect, multiple uses, and zero wastage!'Insects are so useful in so many ways and we hope what we do here can dismantle years of stigma surrounding insects for a better future,' said Kai Ning.We usually prefer to respect insects from a distance, but we love having a place to encourage us to get up close, and see all the good these little critters bring.

Insectta

As the first urban insect farm in Singapore rearing the black soldier fly (hermetia illucens), Insectta takes food waste and returns it into the economy as valuable biomaterials. They hold the knowledge to farm, process, and extract high-value biomaterials from the black soldier fly, ready for use in a diverse array of industries.

Had thought we were going to see a bunch of Insects! But actually, the event was focused on the Black Soldier fly. Nevertheless, was very insightful, interactive and enjoyable.

It was very unique and one of the best activities my kids and I have had in Singapore. We would be happy to go back if there is any activities again at Insectta.
