Insect flour or otherwise cooking with bugs (and avoiding the ick factor)

Co-Exist had an article today or yesterday about insect cookbooks. A company on Shark Tank the other week makes protein bars with insect flour. It seems lots of the world eats bugs (I have only done so in Australia).

So do any of you cook with bugs or bug flour? I hear one can use it presumably with white flour or some gluten-alternative to make bread. I'd love to hear anyone's stories. I did a search for "insect flour" and only found problems with people finding bugs in their flour...
