From what I understand, the reason this happens is because the morning dew stays on the screens and the locusts drink it.
Do you have fiberglass screens or metal mesh? I wouldn't think they could chew through the metal. I agree that soap might be a good remedy because they probably wouldn't like the taste.

i was told to spray my area with soap water to keep away lady bugs. i dont know if it would help with the locust but......you could also try spraying vinegar. i love vineegar it is a miracle in a bottle
