Mitzvah #142 - Not eating Kosher flying insects

One may not eat flying insects, except for some Kosher grasshoppers.

One who eats an olive-size worth of flying insects, or one who eats an entire insect (no matter how small) deserves 39 lashes by Bet Din,

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "Flying insects are impure to you, do not eat them" (Devarim 14:19)
