Described as a “‘truly biblical’ swarm of cannibalistic insects” by Accuweather, the plague involves massive numbers of Mormon crickets that appear every eight years or so and absolutely devastate everything in their path.

Millions of dollars have been spent over the years trying to mitigate them and prevent these explosive bursts of destruction that they cause, but to no avail.

From Montana to Nevada and every state in between, these nasty critters are eating whatever they can find during an already difficult year marked by food shortages, inflation and other economic and social turmoil.
