Hungry Locusts, Flying on the Winds, Eat Their Way Across Two Continents
In some years the Desert Locust is a solitary, stay-at-home grasshopper. But suddenly, as in 1952, it may change character, gather an army, and start a gluttonous, migratory spree. Winds and double wings carry swarms from Africa to India, and some return. Replacements bred on the way refresh the teams like relay runners. Crop losses sometimes threaten nearly a fourth of the earth’s people with famine.
