Caption: African locust (Locusta migratoria) resting on a leaf of chicory (endive). The eating of insects, entomophagy, occurs all over the world, and includes ants, beetles and moths. Insects, along with arachnids such as spiders and scorpions, are good sources of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. The African locust is a major crop pest in Africa and Asia. It travels in large swarms eating all vegetation in its path.
