Some of these species are overexploited because of increased consumption, caused by the huge human population growth in the area and because of the large demand of these insects from many restaurants in Mexico and in other countries. In Tulancalco, a small arid village in the State of Hidalgo, I carried out studies on edible insects over 25 years.

Received Jun 9; Accepted Dec 4. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Edible insects are a natural renewable resource that provides food to many ethnic groups in Mexico. Some of these species are overexploited because of increased consumption, caused by the huge human population growth in the area and because of the large demand of these insects from many restaurants in Mexico and in other countries.

In Tulancalco, a small arid village in the State of Hidalgo, I carried out studies on edible insects over 25 years. The inhabitants of this village have a natural economy and use some 30 species of insects as food. At present, we have noticed a decrease in the population of several species due to overexploitation, which is carried by non-qualified independent workers who are not natives of the town. These gatherers sell their catch to make a living, thus contributing to the socioeconomic factors associated with this issue.

These actions have degraded the ecosystems of this area, and consequently the prevention of these measures is critical. The study species in this paper include 14 threatened species and we discuss some pragmatic measures that could implemented to avoid their extinction. In addition, some actions for the preservation of the ethnoentomobiodiversity in the area are proposed.

Background A great part of the Mexican territory is covered by mountains which are home to a variety of habitats, ecological niches and communities [ 1 ] Fig. People living in these areas have relied on gathering resources from their surroundings, and have maintained their ecosystem, not only for the source of food and medicine but also for the spiritual values that they conferred to the different resources [ 2 - 6 ].

As the access into these sites increased, inhabitants gained access to all kinds of different products, many of which are processed products; consequently, the lifestyle and diet of these people have been modified.
