I saw a few locust

Agra, India
June 29, 2020 9:40pm CST
Yesterday I told that our city was under an attack of a swarm of locusts. And now in the morning I saw a few flying in the sky as well as in my balcony. Though they weren't huge in number but still unpleasant to look at. Now I'm sad to think about the plight of the farmers whose crops they would have damaged in their way here.

@amitkokiladitya How do the farmers protect their farm plants from the locusts?

@Nakitakona I saw videos with farmers playing loud music or banging metal objects to drive the insects away

@amitkokiladitya, True, they are deadly and dangerous for the crops but I am sure our farmers know how to handle it. Let's just pray and hope that the damages are not too much.
