Leech Breeding in Natural Environment
HVM breeds leeches in its habitat, and has located its production facilities outside of the industrial site. Production of leeches in soil based farm ponds is done by artificially creating reeds and swamps that are rich in organic substances. Therefore, leeches are fed with live frogs, fishes and with the blood of winged animals that are taken from certificated firms. Eventually soil based farm ponds can be harvested up to one or two times a year while laboratory based farms are harvested regularly due to constant temperature levels throughout the seasons .
