    I've seen bees in Chinese shows being cooked -- stir-fried, I think. No idea what they're saying, but the bees are big. Maybe they're using drones.

    I've always been curious about this, if not for myself then for adventurous clients. However, collecting brood looks like so much trouble... and such a heavy drain on a colony. To be profitable, I only have to assume that the clients would need to spit out a ton of $$$ for a serving.
    What if you used adult bees and put some sort of "drone separator" in the hive? Let them do the work of separating themselves.

    A couple of weeks ago I cut out some comb to rubber band into frames. I had a piece of capped brood comb the size of my palm that was too curved to fit into a frame well. I crushed it in my hand and drank the "milk" that came out of it. It actually tasted really good. Like almond milk.

    Yeah, and apparently they are pretty common in other cultures. (I am from the US) I have heard Germany often has bees in their delis!

    we used to have a guy on a brush clearing crew that would toss his slickmeat sandwich and snack on grubs the size of your thumb for lunch whenever he found them in old rotten trees. he would pinch the head off so they wouldn't bite him back.

    ERRRRK! Gag reflex!
    While I understand that insects have as much or more protein/vitamins than actual meat and with my culinary skills added with onions, garlic and some veggies would make an awsome stir-fry........The Missus wont let me do it. Thats my story and not budggin!
