Bluegrass, another bug that bugs the heck out of me. Are raspberries are coming into full season now. When I get home (tomorrow), I will be picking raspberries til my head swims. (might look kind of like the gal on the exorcist). I know for a very good fact that I am gonna run into those darn stink bugs. And man do they stink!!!!! I don't like to eat the raspberries when I pick them cause the stinky bugs taste worse than they smell. They are actually such amazing little critters, how they emit their lovely aromas through the air.
Stinky stink bugs.
As far as eating bee larvae, I see no purpose whatsoever. The human's world is so full of proteins and good food that why bother to eat such a tiny little thing, just for curiosity? OK, gotta give anyone that. But the amount that would be required to be harvested would be staggaring, why bother, I just can't wrap my head around that one yet.
The Asians (and many other ethnic groups) love the royal jelly. Now that stuff tastes simply horrible, extremely bitter.
I remember when we were taking our queen rearing course, we would use the little Chinese grafting tool and it was necessary to keep this apparatus moist so as not to dry out the young, young larve that is seated in the milky looking fluid. This fluid tasted horrible and it was all I could do to keep the grafting tool moistened in my mouth after each larva graft. EEEKKKKS.......this is bringing back horrible memories, I must go now. Have a wonderful day, great life, AND, enjoy those larvae, anyway you do it!!!! Cindi
