Caption: Locusts destroying crops. Historical artwork showing the various stages during a locust plague and the effects on crops. At top right is a locust egg. Female locusts lay these eggs in the soil, and under the right conditions they will hatch a locust nymph (less developed, adult-like form). The nymphs go through several stages of development to reach the adult form. Both nymphs and adults can swarm in large groups numbering many millions, stripping large areas of crops, as shown here. A cereal crop plant (left) has been stripped bare (right). Artwork from the second volume (second period of 1888) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
