"What happens is they’re cannibalistic."

- Jeff Knight, State Entomologist, Nevada, talks about the issues mormon crickets cause, especially on Northern Nevada freeways, where if a car runs over one, it causes more crickets to gather and creates a greater hazard. He says the crickets combined with rain can cause very slick conditions and a number of accidents happen each year.
