There around 13 species of locust. Locusts are grasshopper species that form swarms. When enough of them come together, changes occur. They change color and eat and breed more. This forms huge swarms that fly long distances and destroy crops. Desert locusts may be the most harmful. The biggest known swarm was made up of around 40 billion locusts.
