Just the mention of locusts can strike fear into the heart of a farmer. Locust plagues wreak havoc on crops and have been the cause of millions of people going hungry. This book examines the life of a locust and what happens to cause a swarm to form. Locust swarms can contain trillions of insects and cover hundreds of miles of land, so locust control is essential to countries dependent on crops. This book offers both historical and scientific information on locusts and impresses just how detrimental these creatures can be.
