Safe Mode: On
A Helpful Wilderness Survival Tip

Grubs are natures protein pack. A juicy morsel of wholesome goodness! But... Judging by the looks of that grub he just ate, I think a lot of people would opt for starvation and death first...

---

The most abundant life-form on earth, insects are easily caught. Insects provide 65 to 80 percent protein compared to 20 percent for beef. This fact makes insects an important, if not overly appetizing, food source. Insects to avoid include all adults that sting or bite, hairy or brightly colored insects, and caterpillars and insects that have a pungent odor. Also avoid spiders and common disease carriers such as ticks, flies, and mosquitoes.

Rotting logs lying on the ground are excellent places to look for a variety of insects including ants, termites, beetles, and grubs, which are beetle larvae. Do not overlook insect nests on or in the ground. Grassy areas, such as fields, are good areas to search because the insects are easily seen. Stones, boards, or other materials lying on the ground provide the insects with good nesting sites. Check these sites. Insect larvae are also edible. Insects such as beetles and grasshoppers that have a hard outer shell will have parasites. Cook them before eating. Remove any wings and barbed legs also. You can eat most insects raw. The taste varies from one species to another. Wood grubs are bland, while some species of ants store honey in their bodies, giving them a sweet taste. You can grind a collection of insects into a paste. You can mix them with edible vegetation. You can cook them to improve their taste.

  • Wasn't this guy found to be sleeping in motels while he was supposed to be in the wild?

    • Yeah, he is a huge phony.

    • your wrong. he is a real adventurer. he was in the SAS. an advisor on the show did blow a whistle by saying he wasnt always staying in the wilderness over night. so now on the show they kind of allude to the fact that that is what is happening in a blurb before the show starts. but i think he could really survive in those situations if he had to. he's a tough dude.

    • I'm not questioning the toughness of the SAS. I'm not questioning his grit. He really ate that disgusting giant maggot, there's no question.

      I am however questioning the validity of his show that he passes off as real. They yell cut and he drinks his bottled water and munches a cheese burger. The camera is always trying to keep the freeway out of frame, while they claim they are deep in the jungle far from anybody.

      I saw one episode (part of it), started with him parachuting in. He "accid More..

    • Yeah. It's pretty bad when something is too gross for Fear Factor. They never ate anything that bad.

    • I don't know. I'm with Bannan. I'll attempt to derive sustenance by eating dirt, rocks and tree bark first. I've heard about people eating their own feces to stay alive longer. And I can honestly say that that would be a tossup with this giant maggot.

  • Yeah id at least cook it first if i was hungry enough to eat it, it could have parasites.

    • Yeah, a fat bloody zit. *urp*
      I think if I was starving and I came across a few of these, wriggling in a pile... I would probably be upset that I found them. It'd be just my luck too, that I would be traumatizing myself eating this thing, without noticing that I was standing below a fig tree full of fruit or something.

    • Hah yes, probably more so for the dummy eating it. As if he couldn't just hold it up and say "you can eat these".

      Would you eat it? Or try to convince yourself that you will be rescued soon enough?

    • I would rather eat the rotting log I found it under. Hell there is vegetation all around him, he should eat the grass.
