This Thanksgiving, why not spice up the traditional menu with some insects. Entomophagy is the consumption of insects as a human food source.
Are you ready to have crickets on your salad or mealworms in your burger? This could be the future of the human diet as insects play an increasing role in providing human protein. Join us as we explore Entomophagy. Find out what insects are eaten, their nutritional value and their role in agriculture. View some live insects used as food and learn how you can prepare them in a live cooking demo. Elizabeth Hill, Principal Agent Associate with the University of Maryland Extension, is a 4-H educator that teaches entomology to youth and adult audiences.
