Locusts for zoos

Locusts are an ideal food source for almost all zoo animals. Due to their small size after hatching, their fast growth and the beautiful size of adult animals, they are a found food for small to large zoo animals. Locusts stimulate the eating behaviour of the animals and offer a very welcome change in their everyday life.
SmartBreed makes it possible to breed grasshoppers locally in zoos with little effort, right where the daily hunger for insects originates. Our breeding boxes offer a variety of advantages:

  • Minimum personnel time required due to automated processes

  • Continuous self-cleaning of the boxes during the life cycle of the locusts

  • Ensuring constant production output

  • Local production at zoos: flexible removal of animals throughout all growth phases

  • Own control over feeding and possible additives for zoo animals

  • Controlled environment and guarding due to sensors (even at different outside temperatures/humidity)

  • The SmartBreed feed mix enables breeding without the need for expensive breeding of wheat germ

Locusts as food

Locusts are a promising component of the future for the food industry. Due to their high protein content, ammino acids, and low fat values, they have been considered a delicacy by millions of people for centuries. In our boxes the breeding costs for locusts can be significantly reduced. Our system allows the boxes to be stacked as required, which makes the rearing process quickly and easily scalable.

Locusts as animal feed

Locusts are a natural food source for many farm and domestic animals.
As can be seen from the Swiss Confederation's Agricultural Policy 2022, locusts will be legalised as animal feed next year. The market in Europe for insect protein as food for livestock and pets is huge. SmartBreed will also offer optimized breeding services for this application need.
