"The Australian Plague Locust is a native Australian insect that rarely occurs in Victoria. When it does occur, it can be in extremely large numbers aggregated into dense bands or swarms and can cause significant damage to agricultural production, to community assets such as parks, bowling greens, and golf courses, and to private assets such as lawns, vegetable gardens, and vehicles."
I haven't seen any for years, maybe five years ago I may have seen some, not sure. When I was little we had large native grasshoppers in our school ground, but they were nice, not a plague that eats everything in site, like in one of the Laura Ingalls Wilder novels.
julieann: A long while back you posted a recipe for Easy Sauce by Reg and Jack Absalom, I just wanted to say thank you so much, and to mention that it is pretty good for making tomato relish. I am an Aussie living in the USA. No easy access to Ezy Sauce.JulieAnn
