Locusts were listed as one do the clean insects in the Bible that could be eaten, not that I would want to try them.
Many people do not realize we had a swarming type of locust in N. America, numbering in the millions or billions. They swarmed over prarie regions and were hugely destructive. Then they went extinct, the only specimens that exist today are in museums. I do not remember if they ever figured out the reason why they all died out, I think it was before the age of pesticides.

i've had chocolate covered grasshoppers and chocolate covered ants. the grass hoppers were kinda crunchy and without the chocolate i would have never been able to swallow them.
the ants were not to bad.

I find it funny how in the west we have such a weird thing with insects, especially for consumption. This is actually the most natural way of controlling their numbers, so good on them. (Better than pesticides etc)

I've tried grasshoppers and meal worms and they didn't really have a lot of flavor, I suspect because they were dried and toasted or maybe I just didn't notice the taste since I was gagging and heaving. Still, I think it's a great idea. Go Israelites!
I'm glad I tried them, I can cross off, eat a bug from my bucket list.

Its food, so nothing wrong with it. Maybe they can pass them on to other areas of Africa where there are staving people.
In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.
