Language research about isiZulu names of insects

Hello! I'm a student and I'm doing a research about the grammatical and social variation of insects names in isiZulu. The research's main theme is entomophagy, in particular I'm searching for the different variations of the language used to identify insects names (that are agriculturally, medically, domestically, culturally or ecologically common or significant) in the cooking methods. For example, is there a way to say 'fried crickets' or other insects in isiZulu in only one word?
Thank you for reading!

    Hi @myriko
    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you!
    I'm thinking about ways to help you get some insect terms.
    What comes to mind is that I can tweet some prompts @OxfordisiZulu, so follow us there is you are on Twitter (and I can tag you on the tweets if you let me know your Twitter handle).

    And if anyone does know some insect terms, add them to the isiZulu dictionary, it's a good way to have them at hand!
    Add a word to the dictionary
