Schistocerca americana is a species of grasshopper in the family Acrididae known commonly as the American grasshopper and American bird grasshopper. It is native to North America, where it occurs in the eastern United States, Mexico, and the Bahamas.
The Australian plague locust (Chortoicetes terminifera) is a native Australian insect in the family Acrididae, and a significant agricultural pest. Adult Australian plague locusts range in size from 20 to 45 mm in length, and the colour varies from brown to green.
The desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria) is a species of locust. Plagues of desert locusts have threatened agricultural production in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia for centuries. The livelihood of at least one-tenth of the world’s human population can be affected by this voracious insect.
Red locusts actively seek out moist environments such as seasonal floodplains. Grains are their primary food source, so grassy lowlands are prime habitat. They also like spending time in trees and thus prefer some tree cover. Red locusts are sedentary when ample shelter, perches and food is available.
