In pictures: Eating insects in Thailand
Personal favourites

Areerat's most popular offering is a 20 baht (50 cent, 25p) bag of grasshoppers. But she has her own personal favourite.

“I prefer a type of cockroach with lots of sticky eggs inside, which makes them very tasty,” says Areerat.

“My favourites are water beetles," adds her husband Udon, who also sells insects.

"They have more meat inside and they’re quite chewy. I eat them all the time. Sometimes I even eat dung beetles, although not many people want to buy them.”
