I thought I would share these books with you- at least the three I am aware of that relate to insect farming as a means for mass production. The first book I am describing here is probably the most widely distributed (2.3 million downloads) and is available in different languages than english- including Chinese (even though that wasn't by plan from what I gather).
This book is entitled, "Edible Insects: Future Prospects for Food & Feed Security" by Professor Arnold van Huis.
Here is Arnold's website at Wageningen University in the Netherlands:
I have known Arnold for a few years. And, I am actually with him in China now. Class act- great to be around and learn about insects as food and feed.
And- here is the link for the book:
This book is great for learning about the need for insect farming and what it could mean to the world. As I am sure you all are aware, traditional livestock production isn't the most economical, especially when you consider that we have a limited amount of space for the animals or the resources (e.g., feed) needed to support them. Of course, the BSF is a key species that is revolutionizing the insect-farming industry.
As always, I hope this information is useful. Until next time best of luck and happy BSF farming!
