Whether or not they have wings, some insects might get the chance to fly if selected to go in space and become part of the space-farming research. Though many plant parts are inedible for humans, they make a delicious meal for insects. Insects can convert much of this inedible material into something more useful, like fertilizer.
These bugs also provide an excellent source of nutrients for people or animals in space. A grasshopper might be a welcome, if not crunchy, change for astronauts subsisting on dehydrated meals. And, some insects could have additional benefits on long-term space voyagers. For example, the silk produced by silkworms can be woven into rope and clothing.
