i don't know whether black soldier fly has bacteria that can produce chitinase or not.   chitinase assay kit should give you an answer. 
They certainly do. They contain one of the highest known concentrations of chitin of any known insect, and as I mentioned, some get consumed in the process. There are also tons of pupae casings left over in the process, and I sift out "remnants", and put it back in the bin for further processing.

I have no idea how one tests for chitinase. That's not a standard thing that non-scientists do.
