Abstract: Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae), better known as the common housefly, is increasingly considered to be a new, alternative protein source for animal nutrition. By transferring low‐value organic side streams into high‐value protein products, its commercial production contributes to a circular economy. Next to technical innovations for scaling‐up the production capacity, efficient egg production has been identified as one of the bottlenecks of housefly production systems. We investigated egg production in …
