Did you know that a soldier of a group of about 80 million locusts eats two grams of food a day, which is equivalent to the food of 35,000 people a day.
The locusts can cover a distance of 150 km per day.
According to experts, female locusts start laying eggs in 60 to 70 days after birth.
A female lays a minimum of 95 and a maximum of 158 eggs between 10 to 15 cm in sand every 6 to 11 days.
Locusts live for three to six months.
They travel in droves and number up to 80 million in a square kilometer.
They stop anywhere at eight o’clock at night and start coaching at nine or ten o’clock the next morning.
Malathion96 and Chlorpyrifos are insect repellents against these food invaders that are applied at night when they are on the ground.
They have a great sense of smell
In a study funded by the US Navy, researchers have hijacked the locusts’ keen sense of smell instead of adopting new artificial methods to test explosives.
Despite best efforts, This army cannot be completely wiped out, but only half.
