I kind of doubt it, as their shell is so hard. I wonder if there may be a stage in their life cycle where they would be edible.
You don't want to know the number of bugs I've eaten. I'll just repeat. They taste like crap... and most herps seem to agree.Darks!de said:You've had them Brent? :lol:
I agree that the red ladybugs are great, beneficial insects. However, their orange counterpart, the Chinese Lady Beetle (or so I understand they are called) swarm like mad during some years, show up in droves inside houses, stink, taste bad (yes, like Brent, I have eaten them . . . but on accident when mowing), and BITE. I don't care how many aphids they eat, I hate 'em.Rain_Frog said:for such a beautiful, cute, and beneficial insect, why would anybody want to use them for food? :shock:
