Edible Insects For Survival | What Insects Can You Eat

Edible Insects For Survival

There are lots of edible insects to choose from

Earwigs are edible and tasty too.

Simple to catch, requiring little time and effort, you can have an jar full of earwigs before you know it.

Just fill an old can or jar with 1/2" of vegetable oil or similar liquids, even some beer will do and then leave the can on the ground.
The earwigs will soon sniff it out and find there way into your can and drown.

Once you have collected enough, simply strain the liquid and fry or toast over a fire.

Earwigs are just the tip of the edible insects iceberg 

Similar insect to earwigs that can also be eaten by roasting, frying or adding to a stew are:

  • cockroaches
  • most beetles
  • moths
  • moth larve
  • wasps
  • bees
  • scorpions & spiders  [** remove venom glands & stingers]

Fancy trying some edible insects, then take a look at my taste test video of some edible insects.

      Hi mate another question sorry. I am interested in Mealworm too but not sure where I can find them in the wild. I know one can get them big tubs as bird food, but not sure if the standards in hygiene would be ok for human consumption? What can one do in this situation, just wash them thoroughly and bake?
