Yes, numerous hungry & starving regions in the world would be helped with expansion of their diets to insects. Possibly, if insects were bigger & could be butchered.........
I don't think a lot of people like the idea of pop-in-your-mouth whole insects, because the insects may have dirty feet. Ya know...... many homes have you take off your dirty shoes before walking in their clean homes.

Why, cicadas in USA! Timely to introduce cicada recipes in NY city.

After ancient greeks ate cicadas, LOL.

Oh Greek Festival with cicada en poche!

Have been motorbiking in the 80s & 90s.

Been there done that.

The greenfly & occasional mosquito I can cope with but the fuzzy orange shite flies & stink bugs taste bloody awful.

This is one of the reasons why motorbikers look dour & seldom smile...

Have a nice day: Ag
