A Comprehensive List of Yummy Bugs*

All kinds of bugs can be part of a balanced diet. When choosing bugs to eat, you should make sure that the bugs have not been exposed to pesticides or unsanitary conditions. Although some cultures eat insects raw, all bugs should be cooked before eaten. Some insects may contain toxins. Usually these bugs are brightly colored. If you have a question about the edibility of a certain bug, observe whether or not wild animals eat the insect.
Some common bugs for eating include: termites, ants, crickets, grasshoppers, grubs, caterpillars, cicadas, maggots, dragonflies, beetle larvae, beetles, scorpions (cut off the stinger), spiders, earthworms, water bugs, and cockroaches, and bees (boil to neutralize the stinger). There are over 1400 insect species that are used for food around the world. Nutritional info is as follows. Bugs are also a very good source of calcium... bon appetite...
