Locusts belong to a large group of orthopteroid insects in the superfamily Acridoidea, with most in the family Acrididae. This family also includes many grasshoppers. Locusts are similar to grasshoppers in their morphology and differ from them only in their behaviour in which they show a strong tendency to group together and become gregarious, and then to migrate in large swarms.
