Data from: Substrate-dependent impact of black soldier fly larvae on bacterial community composition in substrate and larval body



We investigated how the type of feed substrate and the black soldier fly larval density (number of larvae per container) interacted to influence bacterial community composition in the substrates and larvae over time. Substrate type was the strongest driver of bacterial community composition, and the magnitude of the impact of the larvae depended on the substrate type and larval density.
