Bacteria encountered in raw insect, spider, scorpion, and centipede taxa including edible species, and their significance from the food hygiene point of view
TLDR
The present review summarizes the bacteriological findings on raw arthropod taxa containing edible species and shows potential of bacteria to impair food hygiene and food safety for the human consumer by relating the bacteria found to human diseases. Expand

The sale of tarantulas for either human consumption or for preparation of medicines has become more widespread in Cambodia over the last 10-20 years. With increased media exposure, the trade seems toExpand
Exploring The Food and Nutritional Potential of Three Edibles Amazonian Arthropods
TLDR
Results of nutritional analysis on the three arthropods selected for this study revealed statistically significant differences in their chemical composition, which are similar to those of insects from orders Coleoptera and Hymenoptera, with variations of 13–77% in protein amounts, 10–66% in lipid amounts, and 90–500 kcal/100 g in energy content per unit dry weight.

Traditional healing methods involving hundreds of insect and other invertebrate species are reviewed. Some of the uses are based on the tenet of “similia similibus” (let likes be cured by likes), butExpand
Traditional insect bioprospecting - As human food and medicine
TLDR
It is an interesting concept, managing pest insects by developing them into a sought after delicacy, given the benefits to the environment and human health. Expand
Edible Non-Crustacean Arthropods in Rural Communities of Madagascar
TLDR
Rearing selected edible insects at a marketable level, combined with other insect-based activities such as sericulture, would further improve food security and lead to more effective sustainability of edible insects and conservation of forests in Madagascar. Expand
Alune arachnophagy and approaches to spiders among an Eastern Indonesian people
TLDR
It is argued that spiders are intrinsically no less edible or otherwise useful than many other arthropods, and that the lack of reporting on spiders in the ethnobiological literature may reflect inattention on the part of observers rather than actual indigenous indigenous use of a potential resource.

Wolbachia pipientis in Australian Spiders
TLDR
This study presents the first survey and characterization of Wolbachia pipientis that infect spiders, and indicates a history of horizontal transmission of the bacterium in these host taxa. Expand
