Insect Source:
When possible I use found, naturally deceased insects and taxidermy/dry them myself. However the larger insects I purchase from an overseas insect farm where they are grown for food, and are not wild harvested. This method is sustainable and areas used for the insect farms are kept forested and not clear cut. The farms also provide jobs for the local community.
