Handling of individual orthoptearns can result in bites and exposure to noxious defensive chemicals, and large populations of grasshoppers may also indirectly lead to an increase in blister beetle (Meloidae
) populations and swarms of locusts can be responsible for allergic reactions and aggravation of asthma, as well as mechanical transmission of disease agents like cholera (Showler 1996).
bivittula (Kirsch, 1883), Epitrix spp., and Maecolaspis spp.], Melyridae [Astylus variegatus (Germar, 1824)], and Meloidae
[Epicauta atomaria (Germar, 1821)] were collected from the plant shoots, and 77 beetles of the family Scarabaeidae, from the soil were collected.
In the order Coleoptera, only Meloidae
, Oedemeridae and Staphylinidae release vesicant chemicals that cause dermatitis and conjunctivitis (the first two release cantharidin and the latter, pederin).

Blister beetles, of the insect family Meloidae
, defend themselves with a toxic secretion, cantharidin, that causes severe irritation to the skin and mucous membranes of warm-blooded animals.

Interestingly, in 1999, blister beetles (family Meloidae
) voraciously fed on the majority of the A-975 plants but did not feed on plants from other cultivars.

) OCCURRENCE AND BEHAVIOR IN WESTERN MISSOURI AND EASTERN KANSAS ALFALFA FIELDS.
The beetles (order Coleoptera) are represented by the darkling beetles (family Tenebrionidae), especially the genus Gyriosomus, and are abundant everywhere; other abundant groups include the ground beetles (family Carabidae), weevils (Curculionidae), blister beetles (Meloidae
), rove beetles (Staphylinidae), and soft-winged flower beetles (Melyri-dae).
