Insects such as black gadfly and yellow mealworm are very rich in nutritional value and have significant economic benefits as feed, which are highly favored in the market. The drying and processing of insects is the key to determining the quality of yellow mealworms and is the main processing direction of insects in the future.

Yellow mealworms, crickets, and other insects can only be preserved and exported after drying, so if we want to further improve the economic benefits of insect farming, we need to improve the drying quality of insects. There are many methods of drying, and most of the manufacturers in modern industrial processing are using Microwave Drying, so can microwave ovens be used for drying insects?

Can a microwave oven be used for drying

The answer is, of course, yes, Microwave Drying is the most ideal way to dry, for small insect farmers, you can use a home microwave oven for the drying process, only a small microwave oven can be used to dry insects to meet the export quality.

When drying insects in a microwave oven, you need to use between 40% and 50% of the heat, avoiding high temperatures to prevent the insects from overheating and affecting the quality of the insects, and also pay attention to the heating time, which can be 10 to 15 minutes. If the insects do not meet your ideal drying standard, you can dry them again for about 5 minutes until you can get a satisfactory insect.
