111:365 Locusts

The locust plague is causing great concern for farmers. This will be our problem also as there is predicted to be a huge crop loss in September when the eggs hatch. This will lead to food supply shortages.
Now we are annoyed by the locusts presence and spattering on our cars but the real effect will be felt in our wallets at the supermarket.
This Autumn has seen more insects than usual. Perhaps it's the moist conditions we have had as Autumn is usually very dry in Bendigo.
