From Yahoo! News:
"PALOMINO VALLEY, Nev. - Swarms of Mormon crickets are marching across the West, destroying rangeland and crops, slickening highways with their carcasses and leaving disgusted residents in their wake. 'It's yucky,' said Amy Nisbet of Elko in northeast Nevada, where this year crickets made their first appearance in recent memory. 'You drive down the street and they pop like bubble wrap.'"
