What eats locusts and grasshoppers?

grasshoppers are eaten by spiders, mantids, lizards, birds, rodents, hornets, ants

there aren't any animals that really eat locusts... they're a bit more rugged

however, both are eaten by humans I've only tried grasshoppers (after seeing it on the crocodile hunter) and it wasn't bad... but a bit rough going down

make sure you rip off the hind legs first... I didn't do it the first time... there's nothing worse than swallowing and then feeling something crawling up your throat

How many year to be come a police?

Answer

i believe
to be a police ,i think you have to graduated frome high school,also get 4 years college or university,but that' all i know about how many year to become a police

In North America with a High School Diploma. a clean criminal record and good driving history you can be hired by a city police department or sheriffs office and take the Law Enforcement Training. (averages 1 yr). College or University is required by most Federal Law Enforcement agencies. Previous military training is often of benefit for either.

In TN you only have to have either a high school certificate or a GED and you can go to the police academy for 10 weeks.


You do not always have to have a college education to become a police officer. Most police departments due require that you have 60 credits which equivalent to an Associates Degree. Prior military experience is helpful but is not required as well. I am from Tennessee as well and most departments require you to have a High School diploma or a GED, and also have copy of your birth certificate along with having a good background check with no priors for the last seven years.

What causes my back to make noise when i move?

If you're talking about your back 'popping', then it's because bubbles of nitrogen and other gasses are being released from the synovial fluid between your joints.

Synovial fluid is the lubrication and cushioning fluid found between joints. It has an egg-like consistency.

The same goes for all joints - not just your back.

Why are males so fascinated by female breasts?

Oddly enough, all the prior contributions were dealing with breast size, or how bad guys are, or how they are not so bad. As to the question itself, there were no answers addressing it.

Breasts are a secondary sex characteristic of women, and it is theorized that they developed to indicate that a woman was sexually fertile. While men are attracted to breasts in general, no concrete answer besides that has been found.

In essense, it is like asking why men are attracted to women, or why roses smell like roses. Until the scientists learn something new, the answer is "they just are".
they arent. they are a part of the body that needs to be there not for people to touch all over and play with.

Can you love someone without ever talking or seeing him?

Love requires a personal connection. If you have never had a conversation or some kind of one on one experience with that person how could you truly form a connection as strong as love? You would know nothing truly of this person. On the otherhand, if you have interacted with this person and then are prevented for some reason of seeing or communicating with him/her then sure there could be love. It is called unrequited love and is the basis of some of the greatest works of art - visual, musical and literary.

Is it spring yet?

In nature, a child finds freedom, fantasy and privacy: a place distant from the adult world, a separate peace.

- Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods

There is still snow outside my window, but I am starting to dream about spring - after all, the groundhog might be right. When Spring comes, I want to be outside in my garden. And when I'm out digging in the dirt, my kiddos want to be right there with me.

In anticipation, I've been checking out my favorite family gardening site, kidsgardening.org and they reminded me of all the great reasons to get kids interested in gardens and some fun ways to get them interested in the great outdoors.

Visit a park or garden and collect photos, drawings, words and other reminders of your visit and put them in a nature journal.

Take a nature hike and learn the six parts of most plants and their functions. Start a plant book and, after your hike, learn more about the plants you studied on the Internet.

Start a "learning garden" in your backyard or in a neighborhood plot and keep a photographic diary of how it grows.

Start a worm bin. Most kids love to dig in the dirt, where they naturally uncover earthworms. These squirmy creatures pique kids' curiosity, and they can help keep many a child occupied while adults busy themselves with garden chores.

What will cause your 1991 325ic BMW to make loud acceleration noises?

it depends on what kind of loud noise, a knocking noise, a grinding noise, a chatter. if you can tell me what kind of noise i can help

if your car is a manual transmisison and the noise you are talking about is a "growl" when under load then it is most likely worn bearings on the input shaft to the transmision.

Well if the loud noise in only during acceleration, and has no noticeable effect on the cars driving, then it is most likely a hole in your exhaust. I have a 91 325ic and It had a loud accelerating noise, but when i plugged the hole and the harsh noise ceased. There are plenty of ways to plug holes for free just find one and try it and if it works..great!
