Im aware of “cultures” like sericulture, apiculture, vermiculite and whatever is going on with soldier flies and maggots, but I’m curious about other, if any, permaculture or agricultural(?) insect breeding systems that involve other things. Does anybody know of any other systems like these.

There was a local cricket farm featured in our newspaper about a year ago. According to the article it was producing 2,000 lbs of crickets a week, to supply protein powder for human consumption. I'm not sure if the 2,000 lbs was live weight or dried wt. The crickets were being raised in a greenhouse that is heated with geothermal water. Haven't heard anything about it since then.
