We have to face many types of losses due to locust swarms. Through this post we know about the damage caused by locusts.
In our country, the biggest damage is being done to the crops due to the locust attack. According to the Department of Agriculture Defense, the crop on which these locusts sat is sure to be completely ruined.
During the day, these locusts fly in swarms and in the evening they come and sit on the crops.
It eats all the green things like crops, trees, plants, grass etc. in the field.
These plants destroy by eating leaves, flowers, buds, fruits, seeds and bark of stems all.
It settles in groups on any plant. Due to their high weight in the bunch, the plants are unable to bear their weight and break and die.
Sometimes locust swarms cause such great damage to crops that problems like famine and starvation also arise.
Rabi crops are more prone to locust infestation. It destroys almost all types of crops.
The damage caused by locusts can be gauged from the fact that a small swarm of desert locusts can feed an average of 10 elephants, 25 camels or 2,500 humans in a day.
