    Generally speaking, most grubs are safe to eat as long as they dont show any of the usual danger signs - 'keep away' colouring, hairs on body, etc.
    Another general rule - grubs taste like crap when eaten raw but can be quite good when cooked (especially when roasted).
    They are often very high in both protein & fat, & make excellent 'survival' food.
    Yeah they do take a bit of initial bravery to get over the 'yech' factor, but the roasting helps a lot, & once you've taken the plunge & eaten em you'll realise they're not all that bad. You've most likely eaten worse if you've ever had store bought sausages (full of lips & bums) or (dare I denigreate that American icon) - hotdogs (can you really say for certain they aren't full of lips & bums?).
    Over here 'Witchity grubs' are considered a delicacy by the aboriginal people & can be eaten either raw or cooked. I prefer em cooked as they take on a lovely nutty flavour & actually taste quite scrumo.

    I'd much rather a natural grub dinner than many of our so readilly accepted mass produced 'processed' foods full of chemicals & other nasty additives.

    There may be some lips in hotdogs but I do not believe there are any homeless people in there.

    This is a comparison of Willies carver vs a brand new one. You can see it has been modded to say the least.

    I don't know what would be worse for me, the grub or the beer (but I don't drink).
    Cooked would be the only way I would eat it unless I was in a survival situation.

    From this I take it as ground grub are in the ground, but how do you find them?
    I guess a borer grub is in dead trees.

    No different that the "dirt line" in shirmp, etc...

    Not a big deal

    UW
    What does "thru a couple of changes" mean?
    How can you tell or how long is a change?

    What do they taste like? Do you season them or just cook'em?
    What's better, fried in a pan or roasted over a fire?
    I could eat a mess of crawdads,though.
