According to the United Nationas a red locust can eat its own bodyweight in food each day while traveling between 20-30 kilometres

Lebanon was invaded by swarms of red locusts

‘The swarm extended perhaps 1,000 ft. It was nearly a quarter of a mile away from my position and I took the picture with a 200 mm lens.

‘Perspective makes the leading edge of the swarm appear smaller and thus tapered.’

The red locust can have a devastating impact on the developing world where outbreaks can threaten 15 million people with starvation.
