Australia facing ‘horror locust plague’

The New South Wales Minister for Primary Industries says that Australia is facing down a horror spring locust plague.

Recent rain and flooding has turned huge tracts of New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia into locust breeding grounds. Locusts have already eaten their way though thousands of hectares of farming land.

The Brisbane Times reports that numbers are set to top the multi-billions if a dry winter is followed by a warm and wet spring.
