Who are the rainbow locust?

(ORDO NEWS) — Probably only in areas of short-grass and sparse vegetation in North America can locusts with such an incredible appearance be found.

The rainbow locust, or filly ( Dactylotum bicolor ), has not only a noticeable color, but also a pattern that is unique to each individual. These insects live no more than a year. During her life, the female manages to lay about 100 eggs, which will stay in the soil all winter. And at the end of spring, larvae appear from the eggs. In a few months they will become adults and will be ready to give life to a new generation.
