LOL!! That was my piece to survivalblog, I won a $30 gift card for it. I'm glad to see you all had so much fun with it.

If your home library contains more volumes about survival-related topics than your local public library, you might be a prepper.

Fun now, survival later!

I had to go back and see that indeed one of the links was to the survivalblog article. Good show and glad you won.

Yeah, that was a fun one to write and research.
Thanks for the warm welcome, it is nice to be around like minded Canadians.

I think its the texture that turns most people off.... grind em up put them in a smoothie and I would eat them... cricket farming could become a respectable job.

Deep fried maggots are ok. They eat bugs in China and fried them for us picky types to get us started.; they eat them any which way. We called them crispy critters. I've eaten live termites. Little tiny things running around in your mouth. You would have to eat a whole nest of them to fill up. Just open up and swallow. They are too small and quick for chewing.

Maggots are too small, how about a good fat wood grub? :mrgreen:

You shouldn't have an issue with the meal worms but you may with the king worms. If you find after a few weeks nothing is happening send me a pm.

Btw king worms can bite. No hard, kind of like a pinch :)
