Some people in Cape Town are flipping out over a sudden increase of crickets in the Western Cape with descriptions going from a swarm to an invasion to the dramatic ‘a plague of Biblical proportions’ during a recent news broadcast. I havn’t noticed anything along the Atlantic Seaboard, but pics and video footage from elsewhere seem to indicate that there may be some truth to it hey.
And here is video footage. Warning cricket mass murder after the jump.
According to experts it has something to do with ideal breeding condition due to warm wet weather.
Well ok then.
