The World’s New Protein Source: Hint, It Has Six Legs

We all remember the scene from The Lion King when Timon and Pumbaa feasted on colorful, juicy insects. They came in all shapes and sizes, and were a little too reminiscent of our favorite gummy worms. While we may have thought it was a tad gross back then, now we know they were onto something.

Edible insects have taken the world by storm and are estimated to be an industry worth over $10 billion within the next decade. With a quarter of the global population already crunching on the winged delicacies, it’ll be no surprise when your favorite cereal becomes Cricket Toast Crunch. 

So, what exactly are the benefits of consuming these flying, hopping critters? From ants to beetles, here are a few insects you may be jotting on your shopping list to up your vitamin intake.

Maybe you plan to indulge yourself in crispy crickets, or perhaps you’d rather they stay far away from your home and your plate. If that’s the case, contact Stark Exterminators for a personalized pest control plan to keep all unappetizing insects at bay.
