12 Edible Bugs That Could Help You Survive [Backpacking Survival Skills 101] VIDEO


Backpacking Food Survival Skills:
Entomophagy, or eating bugs is commonplace. Insects are actually the most abundant protein source on the planet, and many of them boast dense concentrations of nutrients like omega 3s. If two billion people can invite insects to the dinner table, it shouldn't be too much of a stretch for you to include edible bugs in your emergency-survival diet.

So, which bugs can you catch and eat? 
1. Grasshoppers and Crickets 
2. Ants
3. Termites
4. Grubs
5. Wood Lice
6. Earthworms
7. Stinkbugs
8. Scorpions
9. Earwigs
10. Aphids
11. Maggots 
12. Dragonflies


Whenever possible, you should cook your insects before you eat them. They may carry parasites or harmful bacteria that cooking will kill, and it improves flavor and makes the nutrients more digestible.

Do you have outdoor survival skills? Will you survive a life-threatening emergency in the wilderness? 
Basic Preparation Will Save Your Ass
When you decide to have an outdoor adventure, you need to be prepared in case something goes wrong. Knowing basic survival techniques will help you avoid dangerous situations and stay safe in all conditions. That should be your goal when you start planning any kind of outdoor activity.

there are tons of different types of food out in the woods, as long as you know where to look.

Take a look for cattails, conifers (particularly the inside bark), grasses, oaks (after you soak the acorns), and of course berries that you can recognize. While these won’t sustain you as well as wild animals, they can help in a pinch.

However, do not eat anything that you cannot recognize: that’s the fastest way to get sick from a poisonous lookalike plant.
In general, do not spend so much time worrying about food. It is far more important to get your basic needs met, particularly those involving water and shelter, and to worry about food later.

Take advantage of these learning opportunities now, before you find yourself in a survival situation. As you build your survival knowledge, make sure you take time to remember how safe the outdoors can be.

It’s great to prepare for all kinds of scenarios, but if you plan carefully and use common sense, you should be able to avoid most bad situations. Don’t hike in awful weather, don’t eat strange plants and bugs you can’t recognize, and don’t tease wild animals.

On this video you'll learn the following:
Wilderness backpacking skills, backpacking safety, backpacking tips, backpacking 101, advanced survival skills, survival skills during disasters.
