Entomophagy {eating bugs} is a common practice in countries such as Mexico, the Philippines, and many African and Asian countries. Entomophagy is becoming increasingly popular in North America and Europe as well.

From my for whats it’s worth department In North America the most common insects used for human consumption are ants, crickets, grasshoppers, some moth and butterfly larvae, beetles, cicadas, waterbugs, and mealworms. Source Edible Insects Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Next time someone say’s “Go eat a bug” smile and say OK, I think I will do that right now!
