For all my friends who jokingly asked when the plague of locusts was going to begin – its already started.
They don’t happen frequently but it’s a fact that they do actually happen here in Victoria.
This is a good link from the Dept. of Primary Industries and tells all about it.
Adults capable of eggs laying were sighted last year and if you look here this will show where there have been confirmed sightings of hoppers in the Echuca region recently
The ones sighted aren't in good condition but with some recent rain those that are around will soon have 'green' stuff to eat and could move on to 'greener' pastures.
Yes, what's next indeed
