  • Why We Need To Eat Bugs - Rainbow Mealworms
    animals in CAFOs is simply scary So how do we avoid this path Vegetarianism seems like the logical answer Although it sounds good it s not necessarily realistic There are many places on earth that aren t suitable for farming and these people would starve waiting for food to be shipped out to them once food resources dwindled not to mentions the high fuel costs involved Also animal protein contains complete sets of essential amino acids which are necessary for human functioning The answer to this global problem could very well lie in our friendly little creature the insect To compare the waste and resources of animal meat obtained through CAFOs let s look at the numbers for raising insects To obtain 1 pound of insects it takes 2 pounds of feed 1 gallon of water and 2 cubic feet of space Martin 2014 In comparison one hundred pounds of feed produces 10 pounds of beef The same amount of food would produce 4 times the amount of crickets So they re more efficient than raising cattle but you might question how beneficial they are to eat What nutritional value do they hold Do they stand up to beef chicken and pork 100 grams of crickets contains 121 calories 12 9 grams of protein and 75 8 milligrams of iron Some options such as silk worms and termites contain zero carbohydrates and are a great source of protein and calories Caterpillars are packed with iron thiamine niacin and contain 28 grams of protein per 100 grams Lean ground beef and fish are on par with caterpillars as far as protein goes but are lacking in the vitamin and iron levels Bryant 2008 In places of the world where red meat is hard to come by iron deficiency anemia could even be prevented by eating insects By switching or substituting part of our diet with insects we could greatly impact our environment and economy through reducing waste and conserving resources and this would accommodate the rising population and their need for food People might initially turn away at the thought of eating bugs because they re not a traditional food source but preparation and presentation are key Although they are edible and can even be delicious raw seasoning and cooking insects makes them much more palatable to those unfamiliar to the idea Most people would never eat a slimy raw quivering piece of chicken but once barbequed and slathered with sauce everyone s mouth is watering Mealworms with chili and garlic fried with butter are comparable to little roasted peanuts Genziuk 2013 Grasshoppers prepared with a Southern Mexican recipe yields a crunchy garlic lime and salt laced delight Lallanilla 2013 For those who are squeamish about seeing the actual bug roasted crickets can be ground into a fine powder and added like a flour to baked goods for a nutritious protein packed supplement Martin 2014 Whichever way you choose insects can be prepared to your taste Because we are facing an

    a nesting couple your mealworm offering will save the female from having to leave her incubating eggs for a long period of time Mealworms also help bluebirds survive during long spells of severe winter weather by providing them with essential protein fat and carbohydrates An article that appeared in Backyard Bird Newsletter August 2005 written by Diane Porter told the author s story of how she attracted bluebirds to her nesting box by offering them mealworms and how they built a nest within three days after she initially fed them Diane ordered some mealworms in hopes of having bluebirds move into her birdhouse where she could watch them from her kitchen window When they arrived she excitedly placed a few mealworms on her feeder outside while whistling the bluebirds song Within one hour of placing the mealworms out on her nesting box two bluebirds came to gobble them up Diane even used a technique which many others have become successful at and trained her bluebirds to come whenever she imitated their call She writes they didn t come around when I was headed for my car or a walk but if I stepped out of the house whistling with mealworms in my hand the two birds flew toward the birdhouse from wherever they were in the woods Porter 2005 Soon after babies were born in her nest box The author states that she feels immense satisfaction after being able to communicate with these wild beautiful birds and she feels she bridged a gap between her happiness and theirs If you re wondering how to feed mealworms to bluebirds there are several options Several different feeders are available although they can also be scattered on the ground The latter is discouraged however because mealworms are a delicious treat for all types
