Species with mouth parts that appear to be 'similar', like Sargus, do feed on honeydew. I have never seen Hermetia in nature...

18.09.15 17:42
Thanks Paul, some sites report that it don't have functional mouth part, other sites say it feed nectar, some publications say it "probably" feed nectar and it's a pollinator.

18.09.15 11:57
Sounds like it might be. Do sites that 'say not' state that they do feed or don't they mention anything?

14.09.15 20:42
Question: is it true that the Hermetia illucens don't have functional mouth part? Some sites say yes and some other say not. It's a bit confused. Thanks Smile
