The human race has seen proof time and time again that nature is not to be messed with.
One day it showers us with warmth and soothes our skin with a refreshing breeze, the next — buries us under kilometers of snow, floods the streets, sweeps houses from their foundations and basically ruins anything we ever held dear.
This video from Russia is yet another good reminder of its unstoppable, destructive force.
Apparently, vast areas of southern Russia are suffering from the worst locust plague in 30 years.
Media reports that southern regions, especially those close to the Caspian Sea, are being swarmed by millions of insects, which are not only GROSS AF, but have also devoured entire corn fields.
According to CNN, more than 3,000 square miles have already been affected by the locust feeding frenzy and it doesn't seem like they're planning to stop anytime soon.
Watch this bone-chilling footage from Achikulak to get a better idea of what's happening:
The situation is so severe, officials had to declare a state of emergency in the region.
"In Kalmikya, Astrakhan, Volgograd and Dagestan, there is already no food left for the locusts, so they have moved on to other sources of food. They have wingspans of nearly 12 centimeters, like small sparrows," Tatiana Drishcheva of the Russia Agricultural Center told CNN.
