Those bugs splattering on my windscreen yesterday were locusts. I found this one in my veggie garden this morning. Hardly a plague but still an indication that they are here.
After his photo shoot this model was snapped up by an agent wearing a chicken costume.
If you are interested in learning more about plague locusts, the Department of Primary Industries has an informative site.
- Have a look at Australian Plague Locusts - Identification and Biology.
- For up to the moment information on their progress through the State.
- And there are some interesting Response Maps showing their progress.
