Until our country swarms of locusts destroyed all the green in the Volgograd and Rostov regions, Bashkortostan. In Dagestan, where the attack of these voracious pests — a rare phenomenon, the effects of locusts came as a shock to the public.

Now selhozspetsialisty not make any predictions or provide comments on the further spread of flying pest, but claim that all the necessary drugs and equipment to destroy the locusts have and used. Hopefully, the enemy will not pass on Yutazy.

BTW. Locust — voracious pest: the day she eats two to three times more green matter than the weight itself. Each individual in the period of his life eats about 50 — 100 g greens. The larvae and adults of gregarious locusts are able to perform the migration, destroying in its path all vegetation. The flight speed of adult locusts is 8 — 10 miles per hour. Insects can not occur every year, and not everywhere, but when it decides to attack, the sight can be scary. As a rule, locusts live alone and brings harm to no more than the usual grasshopper. However, if present in abundance around the plant food, insects begin to multiply rapidly. Millions of larvae collected in one place, you need more food, and they are united in the search for her. On his way devour all vegetation. But this is not so bad. A disaster happens when locusts grow wings and it increases the speed many times.
