SKIN-CRAWLING video footage shows the moment a plague of grasshoppers flooded “Sin City” Las Vegas.

The insect takeover has been dubbed the “Great Grasshopper Invasion of 2019”.

Creepy critters spilled into businesses and streets, carpeting the roads and horrifying onlookers.

A Mini was seen completely engulfed by what looks like a million grasshoppers.

Swarms of the insects billowed around a lamppost in one picture, captioned “we will rebuild”.

Casinos have had to cope with floods of the critters spilling out onto their carpets.

Insect expert Jeff Knight told CBS News the grasshoppers do not bite or carry disease, but the phenomenon is still freaking locals out.

The Nevada state entomologist added that the bugs would be gone in a few weeks, having flown in from the south.

Hundreds of people have uploaded photos of the grasshopper plague onto social media.

Some looked on the bright side, and pointed-out the grasshoppers would provide food for local wildlife.

An Instagram user quipped: “It’s the end of the world folks!!

“But really my daughter is having a blast catching them and everything from birds to coyotes will eat these and be full.

“So I offer up thanks for a season of plenty, even if it’s grasshoppers.”
