To celebrate Halloween, this month we’re blogging about edible insects. Edible insects make great and creepy Halloween party food. If you’re not up to preparing live insects for consumption, you can purchase food insects from the sources below. Of course you can always call Thrasher Termite & Pest Control to get rid of the pests in your house…and, no, we won’t be eating them.

Chapul

Chapul Bars are all-natural bars with protein from crickets-one of the planet’s most amazing, energy-efficient creatures. No soy. No dairy. Just flour made entirely from crickets…inspired by native techniques used for centuries in the American Southwest and Mexico.

Hotlix

Hotlix® of Grover Beach, California is the original edible insect candy creator.  They sell products directly from their website, Hotlix.com, through Amazon.com, and at their storefront in Pismo Beach, California. Hotlix sells prepared  “larvets” and “crickettes,” which are toasted and flavored like potato chips. They will also take phone orders “food-grade” insects like toasted crickets and preserved scorpions so you don’t have to do the initial cooking.
