Destructive insect (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

locust

'destructive insect' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for locust that I've seen before include "It strips plants" , "plaguey type" , "Grasshopper of warm regions" , "Destructive insect; tree" , "Destructive migratory insect" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard, The Mirror and The Telegraph.
