Ethiopia Launches Aerial Spray To Battle Desert Locust Infestation

The Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) of Ethiopia said it has begun preventive measures to control desert locust infestation in various parts of the country.

The desert locust swarms migrated from the Middle East through Yemen and Somaliland posed a threat in Tigray, Afar, Somali and Amhara regional states as well as Dire Dawa city administration.

Several vehicles, a team of experts and two aerial spray planes were sent to the areas to battle the invasion, said Sani Redi, State Minister of Agriculture.

The operations being carried out to control the swarms by the youth in their respective areas are bearing fruit, he said.

Locusts, which can travel 60-70 km in an hour and up to 300km in a day, consume most vegetation in their path.
