The Whitchetty Grub is probably the best known sources of bush food in Australia. The grub is the lava of a moth. In the drier regions of Australia these grubs are regularly found in the roots of the Witchetty Bush (see Acacia kempiana). However, they are also to be found in species of Bloodwood's (Eucalyptus terminalis). The grubs are white in colour, and have a hard wood boring head. When fully grown they can be slightly larger than a man's thumb. The grubs can be found all year, although not all Witchetty Bushes yield these tasty morsels.
