Grasshoppers are an ancient insect that dates back to the Triassic period (250 million years ago).They’re ground dwelling herbivores with incredibly powerful hind legs which allow them to jump long distances.They make their trademark chirping by rubbing pegs on their hind legs against the edges of their forewings.This is done mostly by males to attract females.
Normally, even as herbivores, the solitary grasshopper poses very minimal threat to local vegetation.However in very specific situations in which a drought is followed by rapid vegetation growth, the grasshoppers brain releases serotonin which causes the normally lone insect to breed like crazy and form migratory swarms.This is how locusts develop.
