Nope, they are banned in america because they have the ability to swarm, and once a swarm starts, their very difficult to kill off, their allowed in england because the weather here is rubbish, and they wouldnt survive long enough to create a swarm... their basiclly the same as grasshoppers, but a bit bigger, and they swarm.
