Mitzvah #145 - Don't eat fruit worms

One may not eat insects that grow in fruit, vegetables or grain.

One who eats an olive-size worth of such insects, or one who eats an entire insect deserves 39 lashes by Bet Din.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "All creepy thing on earth don't eat" (Vayikra 11:42)
