Many people of the world still regularly eat insects as did native Americans, pre europeans. Some parts of the world have many types of insects for sale in the market place. 

I doubt any early human culture existed that didn't utilize the food source. They can be tasty and nutritious, eaten with judiciousness. 

 Most of the beetle larvae I've eaten from under bark have a flavor some what like the host tree. The middle sized mallet heads from under hickory bark [I think a type of Long Horn beetle larvae] taste like hickory  nuts a bit, have a nice texture and crunch.

After my maters had died off this year, I wondered what was eating my pepper plants and found hornworms. Been gardening a long time and never seen them on peppers before. 
I prefer picking them off by hand and stomping on the ground to pesticides. They can be hard to spot but leave tell tale poop and barren leaf stalks. 
I used to work with a guy here in KY who was a noodler and had eaten most critters, I'll ask him before I try eating one? ;D

Yup, hornworms leave hand grenade turds.  If you see these you better find the worm fast or kiss those maters goodbye. 








Anyone know what this is?  Some kinda larva?

Those are the whitish eggs the 8!@#%^&* lay on yer plants! Mash those too!
Right now it's the time when the Asian ladbugs try to get in my britches , home and so on. Sprayed the log wall the other day and we tape black plastic in our BR window- they bite!
Meanwhile the yellow jackets like my oak logs when I saw into one, it's also their last hurrah before dead of winter.

Whatever that was went in the burn barrel. 

Lady beatles havent been as bad as usual this year, but stinkbugs galore.  Any thing on the clothesline they perceive as a pocket has been full.  sleeping bag, pillowcase.. Beanie hats etc.  Yuk.

There is a type of wasp that lays eggs on the hornworms that will eat them alive  .However in mass they can do a lot of damage to tomato plants ina very short time .Sevin dust will clean their clocks right now .Give them a squirt from a water applicator and they will drop within a minute .
