Specifically short-horned grasshoppers of the Acrididae family.
yuck. About 2 yrs ago back in Greece, the ecologists freed those things, and in my town we felt like we were the parasite that need to be eaten, before they eat everything else. I remember that week, I had an appointment with my psychotherapist, and we were talking about this. Because it was the news of the century. We never had seen something like this before. Never. And she mentioned that there is a passage in the revelations regarding that. And we were wondering, if this is one of the signs. "I certainly hope not", I replied. But they were millions of them. And that very week about 3 people, mentioned that passage from the revelations. The funny thing is. Except my psychotherapist. They were atheists. But they could not believe this was a simple coincidence.
