Ideally, even if you find yourself in a survival situation, things will not get so dire that you have to resort to eating insects.
That said, sometimes circumstances devolve to the point where the previously unthinkable becomes, well, dinner.
In that circumstance, there is a host of insects that you can eat in a pinch.
The key, apart from catching them, is to make sure you prepare them properly.
Insects carry bacteria, parasites and occasionally, viruses, which can make you sick if you ingest them.
If, however, your situation is dire enough, where insects are your only way to nourish yourself, with preparation, insects can be a great source of protein, vitamins, and minerals.
