Locusts are found underground in large groups along with their Nests.
Locusts spawn from cages and nest found in cave ceiling where light from the sky is less than 3, they respawn sometime after. Nest can be destroyed with a pickaxe and yields, metal parts, flax twine and metal scraps.
Attacking the Player
Locusts will tend to stay as a group in the same area. When a player comes within 15 blocks of a Locust it will begin to glow and seek out the player sometimes bring along other locusts with it. Bronze Locusts have a melee attack that does 1.5 damage, Corrupt ones deal 4. They attack by leaping, sometimes taunting the player.
Locusts are depicted in one of the Schematic tapestries, as shown to the right. The description of the tapestry describes them as "a device to dig and organize materials," and "a little helper."
