Donating to the museum[edit]

Like all insects in the Animal Crossing series, the Migratory Locust can be donated to the museum by talking to Blathers, who will give a small talk on it.

In Animal Crossing[edit]

"I have a rather difficult time dealing with the soft underbellies of grasshoppers. They're...vulgar. And their legs! Why do they come off so easily when one merely handles the beasts? Blech! Simply horrid!"

In Wild World[edit]

Upon donating to the museum, Blathers the curator will say;

"I wonder if the migratory locust thinks about where it's going to go next? Frankly, I suspect it plans not at all and just flies about willy-nilly... Hardly a recommended way of traveling, eh wot? Hoo... But I digress..."

In City Folk[edit]

Blathers will say this upon donation:

"Ah, hoo, migratory locusts. As their name suggests, they fly far...quite far, in point of fact. These insects will fly as a group into fields, devour all the crops, and completely devastate the land. Just one of these beasts is sufficiently horrifying, so imagine how abominable a swarm would be... Blech!"

The Migratory Locust can be found near the Dung Beetle and Long Locust.

In New Leaf[edit]

Upon being donated, the locust can be found in the first room of the bug exhibit jumping around near some bushes. The exhibit has this to say about the Migratory Locust:

"Migratory locusts are large insects that can jump up to 32 feet, as they open their wings when they jump. These locusts love to eat and can consume their own weight in food every single day. As a group, their hunger is enough that a million locusts can consume one ton of food per day. Oddly, when migratory locusts grow up surrounded only by other locusts, their shells will be enitrely black."

In New Horizons[edit]

"Ah yes, the lone migratory locust. It seems like such a harmless hopper as it bounces about in the grass. But beware! When these pests band together and travel in swarms, they leave devastation in their wake! Migratory locusts have gathered by the millions throughout history, wiping out crops and causing famine. That's why I always say, "Never let a locust hang out with its friends!". That is precisely how a plague begins."
