Locusts are a collection of certain species of short-horned grasshoppers. These insects are usually solitary, but under certain circumstances they become more abundant and change their behavior and habits, becoming gregarious.
Locusts are edible insects. Several cultures throughout the world consume insects, and locusts are considered a delicacy and eaten in many African, Middle Eastern, and Asian countries. They have been used as food throughout history.
