Israel Ready for New Swarm of Locusts on Tuesday

New swarm of locusts was entered Israel through Kadesh Barnea on Tuesday. The size is still not clear. The Ministry of Agriculture is tracking the insects and will decide on the appropriate treatment. Israeli officials successfully stopped a dangerous swarm of locusts last week after the bugs invaded Egypt causing crop damage. The Ministry of Agriculture is working on the most effective and environmentally-friendly way to protect Israeli agriculture and natural resources.
