Crickets and Legends surrounding them
Many superstitions surround this insect. In all of the english speaking countries around the world, when people hear crickets singing around their house during the evening, they see it as a bad omen. Whereas in other parts of the worlds, it means something else. If you hear them inside your house, it announces a happy birth. Outside of it, it means that the area is secure.
But when it stops suddenly, it is a sign of danger nearby and it is better to go elsewhere. Might be be a snake, might be something bigger. But be it as an omen of bad luck or happiness, crickets are perfectly edible and will bring you many nutritional and healthy benefits.
Crickets are insects rich in many nutrients
As an edible insect, cricket is probably one of the least repulsive of them. Crickets are healthy creatures, they don't live into dirty or unsanitary areas. Herbivorous by nature, they come to feed on tiny insects such as midges or larvae from time to time.
Cricket are rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron and even phosphorus. They also contain significant quantities of protein and fiber. As do all other edible bugs.
As with all other edible insects, the UN's World Food Programme (WFP) encourages large-scale production and consumption of these small critters. The WFP calls for producers to popularize and promote worldwide consumption of edible insects. By eating insectes, the UN has been able to use them as a powerful palliative to fight protein deficiency in some African and Asian countries.
