It may not be everyone’s epicurean delight but the brave and the curious get a chance to sample edible bugs Feb. 14. 2019, noon  to 4:00pm, at the 31st annual Bug Buffet at Montana State University.

When MSU began this sampling of edible insects in 1991, the treats received a less than enthusiastic response.

MSU entomologist Florence Dunkel, PhD, said that first year, 1991, only about 9 % of those who filled out the survey expressed an acceptance of the edible insects.
