What is Locust?
Locusts are one of the most dangerous insects in the national economy. Pests from agriculture and wild crops are spread all over the earth. In ancient times, locust attacks not only destroyed crops but also caused hunger for the entire nation. A lonely person is completely harmless, but when it enters the ranks of a package, it is easy to destroy all the crops on its way.
About Locust Insects (Tiddi Dal)
Locusts are the herd insects of the true locust family. This large arthropod insect is part of the orthoptera suborder short-billed bird, and its size varies from 1 cm to 6 cm. Some people will reach 14 cm in length in rare cases. Women are significantly larger than men. In appearance, locusts are like grasshoppers. The color of Robinia pseudoacacia has a covering function, which may be different due to environmental factors.
