They eat whole fields bare. This can lead to famine. India, Kenya and many other countries in East Africa, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Pakistan and China are affected.

Weather extremes, such as unusually strong rainfall and heat, favour the development of locust plagues. They provide excellent conditions for the breeding of locusts.

Global warming and the associated increase in extreme weather events, such as flooding and heavy rainfall, may favour the development of more frequent locust plagues in the future.
