i have just produced some healthy bugs on some fungi by not eating them on time, here they eat and sell lots of fungi. They did not smell. as meat filled bugs smells. mine were fruit fly bugs. paul Stamets talks of fungi being good for this he asys in his book tha the threw some rotten mushrooms or other fungi on his fish pond and the fish hit them to knowck the bugs out. ther are people who know how to grow bugs they sell them for fisher men, i bet learning so you could sell them to hen farmers coudl be a good way to earn money. i saw a documentary on how some part of south america which included eating flies, you can buy fly powder by the kilo, i wonder how they produce them. THey sell what i imagine is the same for feeding caged birds in some good pet shops. We don't know do we how much methane and co2 bugs eat. agri rose macaskie.

I did not mean grow insects for eating ourselves rather as chicken food, though the black flour they make of ground flies according to some documentary on south america was used, if i remember right, for tortillas. My father always says, "look how much energy insect eating things have, look how swallows fly around all the time". Frogs aren't very energetic which maybe puts paid to that idea.
Should be usefull to know how to breed them just incase we end up in a concentration camp or get ship wrecked or some other extreme situation, its better than eating your companions . Anyway please spit it out I would love to know how to breed crickets and meal worms. I'm sure i would try it if i knew how, it might increase the bird population in my garden. Couldn't you sell crictets because they make a home happy according to Dickens, if i remember right. he wrote, "a cricket on the hearth". agri rose macaskie.
keeping optimal temps is probably the hardest part for me. they really need to be inside here for most of the year.......and they can smell a bit...... so I don't plan on raising them until I have a heated/cooled barn or workshop
my mom had a friend that owned a deli when i was a child and he was always giving her bugs..fried or chocolate covered or whatever..we liked the bees, they were like rice crispies..choc covered ants weren't bad either.
