What is this ant/insect?

Recommended Posts

Spotted this on one of my basil leaves this morning and it looks like an ant with huge antennae and it appears to have 6 legs, but not sure. Does anyone know what it is and if it's harmful to my plants (or me)?


I was looking up Thai ants but couldn't find any that were as red as this one or with those big antennae. How would it even make it up so high in my condo anyway?

Glad to hear they're likely young locusts that somehow landed on my plants on my 10th floor balcony and not a utility insect.

except that a locust's job in life, is to devour plants!
