Locusts invasion in Madagascar
Adult Migratory locusts can multiply quickly, forming highly mobile groups and swarms. Depending on its size, a swarm – made up of millions of locusts – can eat up to 100 000 tonnes of green vegetation per day.
A locust plague – which is what Madagascar is now facing – means thousands of swarms. That translates to billions of locusts.
