A survey carried out on insect-eating culture among the Bidayuh community in the rural areas of Kuehing and Sarnarahan Divisions revealed four insect species most popular among the people are the larvae ofpalrn weevil or sago grub, RhYfiC/topilol1.1s Jerrugineus and Rhynchophorus schach (Order Coleoptera: Family Curculionidae), adults of grasshopper, Palanga succincla (Order Orthaptera: Family Acrididae), adults and eggs ofred ant, Oecophy/la smaragdina (Fabr) (Order Hymenoptera: Family Formicidae) and adults of beetle, ExopAolis borneensis (Order Coleoptera: Family Scarabaeidae). Bidayuh people from age group 40 years and above like the sago grub most. The practice of entornophagy among the Bidayuh community of Sarawak showed a declining trend, especially among the younger generations due to social change in the living style and availability of other food stuffs.
