Kenya may have a large wave of locusts in December
According to local media on the 23rd, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) recently said that the locust control operation against Sambro County, Kenya, is under way, which also means that the country is experiencing a second locust infestation.
In a statement, the FAO warned that although some newly arrived locust swarms may have laid eggs in Somalia before, the locust swarms may continue to lay eggs in the recently heavily rainy sandy land area in northeast Kenya.
In central Somalia and eastern Ethiopia, a new generation of large wave locust swarms will begin to form at the end of this month and may cross into Kenya in December.
On the same day, Ken Agriculture Minister Peter Munya also said that the government had formulated plans to do so that they would strictly control the locust colony once it entered the country.
