Why shouldn’t the thought of eating insects bug me?

Because you’re probably already eating them. Farms, food-delivery trucks, and food-packaging plants are hardly bug-free environments. Insects cling to the food and crawl through the machinery. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration puts a limit on how many insect parts (and rat hairs and other nasty stuff) can end up in your apple sauce, frozen broccoli, canned mushrooms, ketchup, and other packaged foods, but those itty-bitty bug bites add up. You eat about two pounds (.9 kg) of shredded insect every year. It’s ground into everything during the food-production and packaging processes.
