In the past, people would be panicking to harvest as many as possible.

If the insects were butterflies, well, it would be touted as one of the wonders of nature

That's a lot of free food flying around. If not for humans then for poultry, pork, cattle, fish, plant fertilizer....

I'd love to be eating the eggs from the monster hens that will be created from all this chicken food.

Locusts are a big source of protein.. Not exactly my speed but there are many that consume these critters quite happily

I've eaten them and will again. You break the neck, twist and pull out the spine which makes them bitter. With that gone they are excellent toasted.
