Fried_grasshoppers In Nigeria’s far north-eastern Borno State, man is biting back against the desert locust. Swarms of migrating locusts seasonally strip the semi-arid region of its scanty vegetation and crops.

They eat the locusts which they call Desert shrimps

This post reminds me of a very unpleasant trip to survival school when I was in the military. Try several days of nothing but termites for dinner. Ugh.

Great stuff in these entries; it's always good to see someone representing the cause.

I run what's likely the only business in the U.S. devoted to entomophagy. Considering that I work with edible insects, things are going pretty well....

For more you can find me at www.slshrimp.com and there's also a link to my blog.

Best regards,
