《螽斯》

Library Resources
1 螽斯:
蝗之为孽也,盖沴气所生,斯臭腥,或曰,鱼卵所化。每岁生育,或三或四。每一生,其卵盈百,自卵及翼,凡一月而飞。故诗称螽斯子孙衆多。螽斯即蝗属也。羽翼未成,跳跃而行,其名蝻。晋天福之末,天下大蝗,连岁不解。行则蔽地,起则蔽天。禾稼草木,赤地无遗。其蝻之盛也,流引无数,甚至浮河越岭。逾池渡壍。如履平地。入人家舍,莫能制御,穿户入牖,井溷填咽。腥秽牀帐。损啮书衣,积日连宵,不胜其苦。郓城县有一农家。豢豕十馀头。时于陂泽间,值蝻大至。羣豢豕跃而㗖食之。斯须复饫,不能运动。其蝻又饥。唼啮羣豕。有若堆积,豕竟困顿,不能御之,皆为蝻所杀。癸卯年,其蝗皆抱草木而枯死,所为天生杀也。出《玉堂闲话》
