Such researches have so far focused on five major species or species groups [1,4,5]: the common housefly (Musca domestica), the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens), the yellow mealworm (Tenebrio molitor), locusts (Locusta migratoria, Schistocerca
gregaria, Oxya spec., etc.) and silkworms (Bombyx mori, etc.).
He added: 'We have tested a species of African desert locust ((Schistocerca
gregaria) carefully developed by ICIPE, to investigate its potential to become 'mini-livestock' for mass production for feed and food.
(2008) Relationships between food quality and fitness in the desert locust, Schistocerca
gregaria, and its distribution over habitats on the Red Sea coastal plain of Sudan.
Intraspecific variation may also occur in the internal structures in grasshoppers, as demonstrated by Song and Wenzel (2008) in a study on the male genitalia morphology among three populations of Schistocerca

A study of tolerance of ingested tannin in Schistocerca
has been found to damage several insect pests, such as Spodoptera exigua Hubner (beet armyworm) , Manduca sexta Linnaeus (tobacco hornworm) , Plutella xylostella Linnaeus (diamondback moth), Otiorhynchus sulcatus Fabricius (black vine weevil), and Schistocerca
gregaria Forskal (desert locust) .
