I read this book twice in my life, and now I cannot remember the title or author.

There is an interstellar war where a coalition of races including humans is engaged against a type of alien which spreads from planet to planet, consuming all resources and then abandoning the world. I am NOT talking about Independence Day, but maybe this book was the basis for that movie?

Anyway, the book focuses on a ship which is tracking the progress of these aliens, insect-like i think, and watches as they devour and conquer various worlds. There are several small asides where the natives of these worlds try to defeat these voracious invaders, but in vain. I forget how it ends, but could I get a hand here?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds vaguely like something from Card's Ender saga, though no coalition that I know from the two books I read.
