Australian Plague Locust

 Outbreaks of the Australian plague locust have caused crop devastation in the past resulting in billions of dollars of lost production. After heavy rains have hit the channel country, Queensland sees an increased number of Plague Locusts which migrate toward the nearby agricultural zone. They are similar to the migratory locust, yellow-winged locust, and spur-throated locust, and measure in general up to 44 mm long. They are gray, brown or green in color and sometimes have a pale stripe down their back. They tend to affect crops like summer crops, cereal crops, vegetable crops, orchard crops, forage crops and pastures.

They are also able to live around open leach drains, under eaves, dirty benches and tables, in lawn clippings and upon animal faeces.

They are eaters of rubbish and food scraps, which they seek out on and around dirty benches and tables, in and under drains, behind stoves and fridges and near bathroom and kitchen cupboards. They are also able to make a living for themselves under floors of older houses, septic tanks and leach drains.
