These edible june bugs measure around one and a half inches. They have been salted and dried. Because of this, they are a bit salty to eat dried and whole but they make a great addition to soups or to set atop some wild rice.
These edible june bugs measure around one and a half inches. They have been salted and dried. As with many beetles, these are best eaten with the head and wings removed. They’re a bit salty to eat as a finger food, but they make a great addition to soups or grilled and set atop some wild rice and vegetables.
June bugs are a member of the scarab beetle family (which might make for a more interesting name). They’re considered a pest which makes them a perfect edible insect. Natural pest control.

Cricket protein is similar to beef and salmon when it comes to quality protein. It has all of the essential amino acids and is packed with B vitamins with a perfect balance of an Omega 6:3 ratio of 3:1. In addition, crickets have more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach. The cricket’s chitin (exoskeleton) is a prebiotic just to top it off. ×
Crickets can be grown using less than 1% of the water needed for an equivalent amount of beef. Insects produce virtually no greenhouse gas when compared to beef and can be grown on bio-waste reducing the need to use land to grow their feed. Bugs are an environmentally friendly food source. ×
Insects need substantially less land than other livestock and can be grown vertically in an urban environment. They are grown humanely and can be grown just about anyplace in the world by households, small farmers and large commercial interests. Insects for food is trend whose time has come... again. ×
Current meat production is unsustainable and the more insects people eat, the less meat they will consume. If we make edible insects a trend in North America and Europe, the rest of the world will follow. ×
