More Locusts May Hit Monday

The Agriculture Ministry sprayed pesticide in the Nachal Lavan area on Sunday morning in order to prevent locusts from infesting the region. Sources in the ministry said that the expected warm weather and winds from the south on Monday could bring more locusts to Israel from Egypt.

The locusts are not dangerous in small groups, they stressed. The animals cause damage to crops only in large swarms.
