Edible crickets, but which species?

Huis, A. van

Summary

True crickets belong to the family of the Gryllidae and they can be used not only as food and feed, but also for recreational purposes (fighting or singing). When reared on cheap substrates, they can be used as feed. The house cricket is most often used as human food. The selection of the cricket species may depend on several criteria, such as legislation, resistance to disease, but also taste.
