- Across the country specialist shops are selling food products that contain everything from spiders to crickets, weevils and cicada. Restaurants are even starting to include bugs on their menus.
- Insect farms are also growing, as raising insects require very little land, water or feedstock compared to traditional livestock such as pigs or cattle.
