Could these little guys save our planet?
The simple answer is a resounding - YES! Added to animal and fish feed, insect protein packs an extra punch at a fraction of the cost both to the environment and to the farmer's pocket. Insect farming requires little space, no land clearing, minimal water, and it creates less waste - in fact insects feed on waste! Abbatoirs are unnecessary as insects expire naturally when temperatures are reduced.
Insect eating by humans is not new. The Biblical Moses encouraged the eating of locusts, grasshoppers and beetles while the Ancient Greeks served cicadas at feasts and the Romans were fond of stag beetle larvae. Almost 2000 species of insects have been documented as nutritious and protein and vitamin rich thereby enabling a wide range of mealtime choices as well as creativity in the kitchen!
