Vegas Authorities Say Sin City Grasshopper Plague Is “Mostly Harmless”

Featured Story

When one knows the truth and refuses to obey it, he is subject to any lie, any deception, any untruth that man can conjure up. “For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:21-22). Paul goes on in the next few verses to describe the mindset and behaviors of those who disbelieve (see Romans 1:29-31). As a result of man’s foolishness and his arrogant disdain of the things of God, “God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done” (Romans 1:28). And correspondingly, “Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32).

The word translated “pestilence” is often translated as “plague” or “disaster” in new versions of the English Bible. However, because the word is often paired with both of those, it may imply greater devastation than a mere physical disease. Pestilence incorporates any and all forms of public and mass destruction and often accompanies famine (Ezekiel 7:15) or war (Jeremiah 21:9). Jesus forewarned of pestilence when He described the end times (Luke 21:11).

Las Vegas authorities said the droves of grasshoppers sweeping through the area, causing alarm among some tourists and locals, are actually “mostly harmless.”

“It was crazy. We didn’t even want to walk through there. Everybody was going crazy,” Diana Rodriquez told CBS affiliate KLAS. “We were wondering like what’s going on.”

Videos have been shared on social media showing thousands of grasshoppers descending on the Las Vegas area.

The phenomenon has earned the hashtag #GrasshopperInvasion.

“What happens in Vegas, definitely can stay in Vegas!” wrote meteorologist Steve Glazier in a tweet.

Lyft driver Jessica Palmore told CNN that driving around the Strip amidst the infestation was surreal.

“When I see them, it’s like being in a movie,” Palmore said.

“Never seen nothing like this ever!”

The channel Life With Weather shared a video of a beam of light shooting up from the top of the Luxor casino pyramid, showing the sky teeming with insects.

“I know they are harmless, but they make me super itchy seeing them,” Palmore was cited as saying.

Someone posted a video showing what appears to be a construction worker getting swarmed by grasshoppers.

But Las Vegas city authorities said in a news release that the wave of adult pallid-winged grasshoppers traveling north to central Nevada is nothing to worry about.

#GrasshopperInvasion: here’s when we can expect these (mostly harmless) critters to leave the valley …2510:01 AM – Jul 27, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy15 people are talking about this

“They don’t carry diseases or bite and probably won’t even cause any damage in your yards,” said Nevada state entomologist Jeff Knight. “They do not eat wood.”

He urged patience, as the critters will soon be gone.

“There is really no point in spraying your house because they won’t be around long enough,” Knight said. “They may lay 50-100 eggs that could hatch in the fall but they most likely won’t hatch because conditions are not right. They generally just eat weeds.”

Knight said the grasshoppers are drawn to ultraviolet light sources and so switching to different lights would encourage them to leave.

“They attracted to the ultraviolet lights so you can consider changing the lights outside of your house and garage. If you go to a low UV or amber light, they will move on. You’ll see the most under bright white lights at night.”

He said there have been several similar migrations in the past 30 years, including one about six or seven years ago, adding that they’re typically linked to unusual weather patterns.

“It appears through history that when we have a wet winter or spring, these things build up often down below Laughlin and even into Arizona,” Knight told CNN. “We’ll have flights about this time of the year, migrations, and they’ll move northward.”

This year, the Las Vegas area recorded more rain in six months than it typically gets in a whole year, CBS reported.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said that Nevada normally has the least amount of rain in the country.

“Nevada is the driest state in the United States with a statewide average annual precipitation of only 10 inches. Locally, average annual precipitation varies from 4 inches to more than 50 inches on high mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.”

The NOAA notes the 5-year average precipitation has ranged from less than 9 inches in 1925–1929 to almost 13.5 inches in 1980–1984, adding that “the early part of the 21st century has been below average.” Source

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.” (Joel 2:28.)

John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.

Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.

They perverted justice among themselves (v. 7): “You turn judgment to wormwood, that is, you make your administrations of justice bitter and nauseous, and highly displeasing both to God and man.’’ That fruit has become a weed, a weed in the garden; as nothing is more venerable, nothing more valuable, than justice duly administered, so nothing is more hurtful, nothing more abominable, than designedly doing wrong under color and pretense of doing right. Corruptio optimi est pessima —The best, when corrupted, becomes the worst.

It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.

2 Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

“Pedophile” has reverberated throughout America. But beneath our anger and revulsion, a fundamental question pulsates: Are those who abuse their positions of trust to prey upon children—a category certainly not limited to those in religious orders—sick … or are they evil? We need the answer to that fundamental question. Because, without the truth, we cannot act. And until we act, nothing will change.

My job is protecting children. It has taken me from big cities to rural outposts, from ghettos to penthouses, and from courtrooms, into demonic battlefields. But whatever the venue, the truth remains constant: Some humans intentionally hurt children. They commit unspeakable acts—for their pleasure, their profit, or both.
