Hordes of grasshoppers descend upon Las Vegas, experts blame wet weather | Fox News

Wet weather to blame for the hordes of grasshoppers that have descended upon Las Vegas this week.

“It appears through history that when we have a wet winter or spring, these things build up often down below Laughlin and even into Arizona,” Jeff Knight, an entomologist with the Nevada Department of Agriculture, said on Thursday.

“We’ll have flights about this time of the year, migrations, and they’ll move northward,” he added.

This year, the Las Vegas area recorded more rain in six months than the annual average of just under 4.2 inches per year.
