Entomophagy: Student Sustainability Video Festival 62

The extended Christmas weekend is over, but it's still holiday season, so I'm going to take it easy for the rest of the year and into the new year by resuming where I left off this August with Lionfish: Student Sustainability Video Festival 61.  Time for videos from my students' presentations!

Today's clip is my favorite from the videos my students used as visual aids in April, ASAP Science's Should We All Be Eating Insects?

Could these creepy crawlers be the future of food?

I couldn't resist.  I haven't posted an eating bugs entry since Cracked on insects as a food of the future in October 2015.

Stay tuned for more videos from my students.


  1. Well, they would certainly be eating us if they were big enough.

    Seriously, please. Eat all the bugs you want -- don't worry about leaving any for me. I'll stick with plants, thanks.

    1. Size doesn't matter to some of them, such as mosquitoes, black flies, fleas, and lice. They're eating us already, just not all at once.

      You're not alone in your feelings about the matter. I'll eat insects (gusano and chiapulin), but this topic is guaranteed to gross people out.

  2. I'm with Infidel. Though if anyone wants to come to my place this summer for a big meal of Japanese Beetles, bon appetit!

    1. Their grubs might be worth eating. The adults might be too tough for my taste.
