We have a ton of them in our yard.My son just asked me this..and you know..I really didnt have an answer,lol.
They are actually one of my fav bugs. lol I use to play with them all the time, and never was bitten. I'm sure they might if they felt threatened or think you might be tasty. Their life cycle is kind of interesting. The larvae burrow into the ground where they live for something like 7 years. Then they come out of the ground climb onto a tree or your house or the like, come out of their shell where they immediately start looking for a mate. That is pretty much the extent of their lives. By the end of summer the locusts are all dead and the new larvae are in the ground.
