Millions of #locusts targets #Sardinia, #Italy

Locust Alert

Millions of locusts have been causing “considerable damage” to crops and food for livestock, according to a local farmers’ union.

Italy’s farming association Coldiretti says millions of locusts are causing “considerable damage” to parts of the island, which runs a risk of “seriously compromising part of the harvest”.

Leonardo Salis, the president of Coldiretti’s Nuoro chapter, said the locusts were “devouring everything they encounter” and in some cases “leaving animals without grassland”.
