Grasshopper nuggets are food for “giant” birds costing from several tens of millions to hundreds of millions of dong.
From pests of crops, grasshoppers are now on the drinking table into a famous specialty
Young grasshoppers are also food for ornamental birds, precious birds of the rich. Each kilogram of grasshopper nuggets is sold for up to half a million dong/kg
Whenever the rice harvest season comes, grasshoppers are present all over the fields. At this time, people bring home-made net racquets with large sizes to “raise” grasshoppers
As soon as the rice field was discovered to have locusts, people constantly used racquets to swing back and forth, resulting in the locusts in the net bag.
Every day, each person in the field can rack up a few kilograms of grasshopper nuggets
Grasshopper grasshoppers are young grasshoppers, without wings
After the racquet returns, grasshoppers are cleaned, picked up trash, legs and antennae and stored immediately in the freezer compartment to keep the freshness.
Grasshoppers don’t eat well, but they are hunted by “giants” who play ornamental birds because they contain chlorophyll, protein, fat and many other nutrients.
Grasshopper nuggets season usually lasts from February to the end of August
Because of the large number of visitors, the profession of hunting grasshoppers also brings a significant source of income for farmers
