Which insect erupted over the Mooiplaas area in the Kruger National Park some time ago and managed to reach phenomenal plague proportions over the Mooiplaas ranger section and especially the ranger’s house and staff living quarters?

:hmz: Characteristics of Insects:
1. Exoskeleton
2. Three body regions: Head, Thorax and Abdomen
3. Three pairs of Segmented legs
4. One pair of Antennae
5. Most have 2 pairs of Wings (a few insects, such as Ants, don’t "usually" have wings; some insects, such as Flies, only have 1 pair of Wings)
