Locust plagues are no laughing matter

The Agriculture Ministry issued a special warning to farmers in Israel following the swarms of locusts plaguing neighboring Egypt.

The ministry said Monday that it has been preparing for the possibility that the insect will invade Israel if Cairo fails to deal with the problem properly.  

The entire region was placed on a “locust alert” by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in January.

The ministry has set up a special hotline for farmers that may find an infestation.

The ministry urged the public not to be alarmed by individual, sporadic sightings of the large grasshopper in urban areas, stressing that “The problem is when they appear in the millions.

“It looks like a black cloud – you really can’t miss it – and they will eat anything. They can devour acres of crops very fast,” an Agriculture Ministry official told Ynet.

Swarms of locusts have descended on Egypt Saturday, plaguing Giza and Cairo.

    South Africa used to go into the hills in the North every year and kill the locust breeding grounds with DDT, apparently they stopped doing it about a 20 years ago ….

    • Not DDT: Deltamethrin.

    What’s the bet Morsi announces that the plague of locusts is actually a Zionist plot?
