    Well, technically they’re not locusts until they (grasshoppers) get together.

    It’s true, and looks like it really hurts their feelings! Well, some of the butterflies were pests in their former lives, also eating crops.

    Even The Day Of The Locust wasn’t as depressing as he is!

    I know some folk who need to ask, “Why does everyone think I’m a plague?” instead of asserting, “Everyone in the world but me is an idiot.”

    Blame it on serotonin induced, density-dependent phenotypic plasticity.

    I have to buy 8 milkweeds every year to replace the ones those butterflies devoured the previous year. So they can be a plague as well.

    Of course, why would anyone any plant milkweed except to feed butterfly larvae?

    Pretty sure Monarchs only ravage milkweeds…not whole crops of grain.

    I find this particularly funny as I lived in Santa Cruz County for a few years and would take visitors to Natural Bridges.

    Yeah, but ask the butterfly about all the hurricanes on the other side of the world…
