    Billions of Locusts Hatched in Southern Israel


    [Billions of newly hatched locusts are spreading throughout Israel's South. The young locusts identified in the Negev Desert area are the offspring of locust swarms that entered Israel from Egypt in March.

    They are unable to fly and are not yet big enough to cause crop damage, according to reports. Once the young locusts begin to fly, in about a week's time, they could cause serious damage to southern Israeli fruit and vegetable crops.

    Spraying of the locusts as they were laying eggs was not as effective as anticipated, according to reports. A swarm of 30 million locusts first appeared near Cairo on March 2 and caused millions of dollars worth of crop damage in Egypt]. (Photos by Eliahu Hershkovitz/Haaretz)
