If you are like me, I hate to think about insects in the foods we eat. Years ago, my family was visiting Seattle's Pacific Science Center, and it had a display that showed the amount of insects that are contained in processed foods that are eaten in about one year. The box was 8 inch- es square, clear plastic filled with insects. To think we unknowingly eat that many insects yearly is enough to turn my stomach. Students of Washington State Univer- sity professor Richard Zack's insects and people course, as well as the public, have a chance each fall to put their gag reflex to the test dur- ing the annual insect-eating lunch at Ensminger Pavilion. The menu typically consists of good food, like cricket chili, mealworm tacos and vari- ous pastries sweetened with honey, an insect byproduct. Those attending also can sample comb honey, wax and all. Yum? Sorry, but I'll stick to my traditional protein sources - eggs, fish, chicken, beef and pork -- thank you very much! Master gardeners are staffing the plant- and insect- clinic year-round from noon to 3 p.m. Mondays. Stop by with your questions and sam- ples, and talk with a master gardener, or give them a call at 427-9670, ext. 687, and leave a message. Calls are returned on Mondays. If you have an urgent question, call 427-9670, ext. 688, and I will try t help you with your problem. Jeanne Rehwaldt is the extension coordinator supervi- sor at WSU Extension Mason County.
