GRUBS, INSECTS & WORMS

You can also eat wasp and bee larva(wax worm), in the same manner as grub worms. But extreme caution must be exercized when gathering these. In the case of honey bees, the honey is an excellent food as well, as are the bees themselves. Bees can be put over a low fire and completely dried, mashed up and used as flour or thickening in a broth.

Ants, katydids, June beetles, earthworms, dragonfly larva, cicada, stick insects and moths can be cooked in the above methods as well.

As in anything, the above may require an aquired taste. I have tried and actulally liked alot of them. And in a survival situation, it sometimes is a question of starving or "pass the bugs, please..."
