Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What happened to all the dead locusts?
וַיַּהֲפֹ֨ךְ ה רֽוּחַ־יָם֙ חָזָ֣ק מְאֹ֔ד וַיִּשָּׂא֙ אֶת־הָ֣אַרְבֶּ֔ה וַיִּתְקָעֵ֖הוּ יָ֣מָּה סּ֑וּף לֹ֤א נִשְׁאַר֙ אַרְבֶּ֣ה אֶחָ֔ד בְּכֹ֖ל גְּב֥וּל מִצְרָֽיִם׃
The LORD caused a shift to a very strong west wind, which lifted the locusts and hurled them into the Sea of Reeds; not a single locust remained in all the territory of Egypt.
After Hashem brought a wind to blow away the locusts, not a single locust remained in Egypt.
This was in order that the Egyptians would not be able to enjoy them as food.
Even locusts that had been previously preserved for food disappeared.
(Shemot Rabbah; Midrash Tanchuma; Sefer HaYashar)
