Edible Insect Breeding Farms

As the concern for the environment and our personal health grows, many actively seek a new sustainable meat source. Designer Katharina Unger feels she may have figured out the solution with Insect breeding farms.

The larva that bugs produce is a high source of protein and fiber, which are two things that are essential to health. In Unger’s system, flies will breed and create new larvae, which will be held at the bottom of the machine, ready for consumption. Some of the new larvae will need to be put back into the farm so that they can continue to reproduce. This allows people to be free from the current meat-eating systems in place. As people are looking for a sustainable meat source, they need to question if they are ready to eat bug larvae.
