Locust Plague in Australia
    #2438578 - 03/16/04 11:00 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

It is snowing here today, March 16th. I feel terrible for Australian farmers. Yeah, there's no such thing as climate change.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/3516132.stm



A plague of locusts that has devastated crops in the Australian outback has begun migrating south.
Heavy rains that ended a long drought in north-eastern Australia has provided ideal breeding conditions for the bugs.

Officials said the swarms that appeared in remote parts of Queensland had moved to more built-up New South Wales.

"We were just staggering out of the drought, we are incredibly frustrated," said farmer Bev Dennis, based 550 km (340 miles) west of Sydney.

"A thick haze of them came through over the weekend and chomped their way through our oats crop overnight," she added.

She said the oats had been intended for her lambs, which had had very little grass to eat over the last two years due to lowest rainfall levels in a century.

"I just kept on thinking it's got to get better, but now we've got this," she said.

Until the weekend, locust fighters thought they had won the battle over Australia's worst locust outbreak since December 2000.......

They need to bust out some DDT on their asses. btw, DDT is essentially harmless despite popular belief.

Yeah definitely, never should have been banned. THey should use it again, it could serious curb malaria among other negative things.
