I've been curious to try one of those cricket tacos I saw on the travel channel a few years back....Idk about feeding my dogs kibble based on bugs, but if it's cleared why not?

Admin Reminder - no political discussions.

Dog food and nutrition = Perfectly fine. This is an interesting topic, please leave politics out of it so we don't have to close it.

Seems like a good "unique protein" to try for dogs with allergies, too. Many people around the world eat grubs for protein and fat. It's just the ick factor that would prevent me from eating grubs, hard to get around it. Although, lobsters and crabs are pretty much big sea bugs, and people pay lots to eat them, so maybe it's all about really good marketing.

Similar to how the Patagonian toothfish became the much more palatable sounding "Chilean sea bass".

Oh my, you better have Benedryl ready. That is a major reaction and can get worse with the next sting. Deja hunts for them, eats them without ever having being stung. She gets mad at them when she is eating raw in the summer and just adds them to her meal. I don't get it.

So what happens when agribusiness gets on board and starts researching for ways to make bugs bigger faster? Bugs have had their reign back in the Carboniferous/Permian periods, letís not open that door. Keep them small and sqaushable please
