I think the biggest issue that I had was the "pop" factor. Most of the bugs are better toasted. Grasshoppers and ants I prefer coated with chocolate. :)

dry them out, ground into flour and mix with other flour or make it into a paste, or something like a hamburger pate, just and idea, from the links.

Then it's a logical process to also think of using bugs to add a high protein source to homemade cat & dog food - if we can eat "fresh processed bugs" then our pets could too!

I'm kinda thinking if we are down to eating bugs, then the pets are long gone...

Just my thoughts....

Oh I'm so scared of getting to the point of someone wanting to eat my pet!!! There was an article on the internet about how the French ate all the animals of their zoo, including their much prized elephants. I'd gladly eat bugs, I think it's important to get informed on this alternate source of protein. Does anyone know if there's any poisonous bugs?

Also, could you eat rats, bats, mice without worrying about disease provided you cooked them well. Or is there chance of getting the hunta virus or rabies or whatever?

I would never eat Bats, I like them too much and they are beneficial.

People eat Rats/Mice and bugs all over the world. Look at the links posted first page for info on Bugs. For Rodent meals, you would need to ascertain if the rodent is sickly first, those should never be eaten, same as any other critter.

I would be cooking up bugs and mice long before my Dog!
