We quantified the relative importance of substrate-associated and black soldier fly (BSF) egg-associated microorganisms on BSF larval performance, bacterial abundance, and bacterial community composition, when larvae were fed with chicken feed or chicken manure. We found that microbes from the feed substrate have a large impact on BSF larval microbiota and performance, whereas microbes from the insect eggs only play a minor role.
