Entomophagy Discussion & Experimentation

That makes sence :) I certainly hope so. They are on my list of inverts to try to raise. Are there specific familys of grasshopper that are fully non-toxic ie safe for lizard/spider food as well as people.

I've eaten carolina locusts and various spur throated grasshoppers and I'm not dead.

I wonder if roach flour could be a thing?

I've eaten cookies made with cricket flour, and they don't taste like bugs. They just taste slightly nutty and a tiny, tiny bit like how large bugs smell. Not like dirty enclosure, just that "bugs are here" smell.

I've eaten dried mealworms. I think they were dehydrated (or baked?) with a little oil and some salt added. They actually taste pretty good! Kind of nutty and savory. I could imagine using them as croutons or even snacking on them alone.
