Biblical Locust Plague May Jump From Argentina Into Giant Farming Nation Brazil, Threatening Winter Crops – Insects Already in Colombia and Heading North to Guatemala, El Salvador and Belize – Mexico and the U.S. Next?

Weather conditions may be forming to send a cloud of locusts in northern Argentina over the border to Brazil, threatening winter crops.

That would add even more pressure on the already collapsing global food network.

Weather conditions may be forming to send a cloud of locusts in northern Argentina over the border to Brazil, threatening winter crops in the giant farming nation.

The locusts are now about 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the Rio Grande do Sul state border.

But wind currents on Wednesday may take the insects into Brazil, Celso Oliveira, a meteorologist at Somar Meteorologia in São Paulo, said by text.

The swarm could harm wheat, canola and barley crops in the western part of the state, as well as native vegetation, he said.

While the phenomena has always been present in South America, excessive dryness and warmer temperatures this year have seem them thrive. The most recent invasions in Argentina were in 2019 and 2017.

And according to the following videos, the locusts seem to move towards north and start invading countries like Colombia:

Massive swarms of locusts have ravaged fields in Africa and Pakistan, destroying crops and dealing a crippling blow to economies.

Locusts are migratory, able to travel as many as 150 kilometres in a day. They have been known to cross from one province to another, or even from one country to another, in a few hours.
