Inguna - if I have not properly conveyed my fondness for you before, let me rectify that situation now...

YOU ROCK!!

I have to say that I have ingested my fair share of bugs (which is just going to happen if you drink tea, so I am rather unphased by little bugs in chamomile - this is what the strainer is for.lol.) so I LOVE this nod (vigorous head gesturing?) to those little critters most people don't WANT to think are in there.

Maybe drinking Bai Hao and Puerh has desentized me to what MIGHT be in my cup....

Hmmm....let's eat!! :twisted:

Aphroditea – virtual hug! I much rather prefer bugs to pesticides – crunch, crunch, slurp :)

I should be writing client e-mails and doing serious stuff, instead I amuse myself with bug labels ... shakes her head in disbelief :lol:

That label is very fetching!

I would be tempted, especially if the bugs are certified organic :)

It's the splat that really makes it. I knew Inguna had an eye for beauty (probably two of them) - but beauty AND gore? Genius! :twisted:

Sorry, but you're wrong on this one. Borax has to be ingested, to go after that aforementioned gut bacteria.

Pesticides marketed for ants and roaches are made to be consumed, while the stuff for fleas and ticks is made to affect a bug that's in close contact for a while. Neither hurts bedbugs a bit--they're strict bloodsuckers and they eat and run too quickly to be affected by contact pesticides. Also unscathed by foggers, as they bed down behind baseboards and the like, out of reach. Evil!

I suspect you're thinking of diatomaceous earth, which looks similar to boric acid but only requires an insect to walk through it. Food grade DE is safe for us and is used sometimes in food storage (if you've had flour, you've eaten DE), but it's microscopically sharp and slices up a bug's exoskeleton--can't get resistant to that no matter how evil you are.

while we freak out about bugs in our food....it´s quite common for people in other cultures to intentionally eat bugs.

my gf tells me fried crickets are quite delicious :lol:
