This is a bug called ptecticus tenebrifer, or black soldier fly, usually found in Korea, the United States, Japan and China.

This flying bug that is 13 to 20 millimeters long and feeds on the organic waste when in a larva state is known to be an effective, eco-friendly insect.

The insect breaks down not just food waste, carcasses of animals, and livestock feces and urine, but botanic waste.

[Park Gwan-Ho, official, Rural Development Administration]
"This insect tackles two to three grams of food waste when in its larva state for about 15 days. The amount eaten by each larva looks small, but if the number of the larvae reached hundreds of thousands..."

Some 5,000 larvae consume more than 80 percent of 10 kilograms of food waste just in five days.

Last year, the government listed breeding facilities for ptecticus tenebrifer as a new waste management measure, opening ways to deploy millions of the insects.

Some two billion ptecticus tenebrifers are growing at this automated plant in the country's southwestern city of Gimje.

[Lee Jong-Pil, chief of ptecticus tenebrifer company]
"The larva, full of protein, can also be used as a substitute additive for animal feed, all of which we import from abroad now."

The excrement of ptecticus tenebrifers is used as agricultural fertilizer as well.

Now, breeding the black solider fly is being recognized as a new blue-ocean business sector.
