Argentina threatened by worst locust plague in 60 years

Joel 2:25 NIV "I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten-- the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm -- my great army that I sent among you."

Officials in Argentina are currently working to minimize the impacts of the biggest locust plague to affect the country in the past 60 years, The New York Times reported earlier this week.

A warm and wet winter helped boost the locust population, according to the report.

The extermination efforts could become more complicated in a matter of days, an agricultural official told the newspaper, as the locusts are expected to take flight and search for food.

Argentinian farmers are no stranger to the effects swarms can have on agriculture, The New York Times reported, and are preparing for the potential impact on crops and grazing lands.
