Arab Times Online. May 1, 2019.
KUWAIT CITY, May 1: Despite the attempts of the Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) to fight the swarms of locusts coming from Saudi Arabia towards the Wafra farms, it looks like the yellow locusts have won the battle and caused heavy material losses to many farms, reports Al-Qabas daily. The swarms invaded the farms about three days ago and destroyed tomatoes, cloves and other products and even attempted to invade the ‘hydroponic farms’ causing material losses that could have negative consequences on the vegetables and cattle market due to hike in prices of products. Environmentalist say due to over killing of birds this phenomena has occurred in many countries, you see swarms of locusts in large numbers.
