Not much spoken article wise, but hey, way to make use of one's environment. Seems kinda yucky but nature does provide. I don't see anyone slapping or scratching so I wonder if these things are biting everyone. Obviously to spread the diseases they do, but those kind of hoards around a camp usually sends everyone running.

Wonder how it tastes? I'd have one cooked well please.

Peace,
spec

For those that can't watch video, in a village in Africa, children are gathering mosquitos with pots, kind of like a butterfly collectors scoops them out of mid air in a net. The mosquitos are so thick that before too long, there is a concentration in the pots that they grab up with their hands and mash into patties. Yummy!

I find this to be utterly fascinating. Quite a creative solution to filling your daily protein requirement. I just hope some executive at McDonald's doesn't see this video!

How do you know when the crunchy black patties are done cooking?

That sounds like the beginning of a horrible joke, but an actual question.

eww that is so bad i wanted to puke


is that even healthy like if they eat it does it even give them any nutrients for there to be a reason to actually eat it?

what about the diseases that those bugs carry? don't they transfer to the burgers?

In all actuality it's probably better for you than fast food.

Head researcher Arnold Van Huis told a disbelieving audience at Wageningen University in the Netherlands: “There will come a day when a Big Mac costs $163 and more people will eat insects than other meat” in Bug Macs.

That's probably the most sickening mess I have EVER seen. I don't care if they're well done or not. Those things carry diseases.

Why oh why would you eat a 'squiter burger???

Yes, it is true that mosquitoes carry a variety of diseases. But cows carry diseases as well. Its all just a matter of cultural perspective.


Once I asked my sister if she would consider eating a dead animal. She looked at me with the most repulsed expression and said "hell no." I then asked why she was eating the Hardee's special that was in her hand. She was at a loss for words.

When you can no longer see the wings?

Surely they contain protein, and here are some other bug nutrition facts, and it seems they have some calcium and iron.

Guess ya just have to cook em' long enough, besides, don't many meat eaters desire a little blood with their finished steaks?
It does seem gross, but also logical considering the situation. Man I would have to at least have some ketchup to try one.

Ecology my friend, in a survival sense.

You know, I bet if one were to add some filler these "burgers" might resemble black pudding/blood sausages. Just a guess.

True true, and one could argue degrees of 'grossness' between cooked insects and less cooked blood sausages.
Not a fan personally, but I know people love em.
