Lost in the forest or mixed forest, people are not always armed and capable of hunting large and medium game. Hunting for small game hunting and fishing may not bring the desired results, but the need for protein does not alter this fact. Then, we have to pay attention insects and their larvae.
In many insect protein. This is important! Yes, we all residents of south-east Asia, and insects, worms, larvae – far from being a delicacy for us. However, there are times when you should discard the fastidiousness is. Survival in the forest – this is such a case.
So, what insects are suitable for food and where to find them.
