Locusts have plagued man from the earliest recorded times. The Desert Locust (Schistocera gregaria Forsk.) is repeatedly referred to in the Bible and was shown carved in stone in ancient Egypt. The Red Locust (Nomadacris septemfasciata Serv.), on the other hand, inhabits Africa south of the Sahara, a region for which there are no written records more than a few centuries old.
