We investigated how the type of feed substrate and the black soldier fly larval density (number of
larvae per container) interacted to influence bacterial community composition in the substrates and
larvae over time. Substrate type was the strongest driver of bacterial community composition, and
the magnitude of the impact of the larvae depended on the substrate type and larval density.
