Chinese authorities have dispatched 100,000 ducks to fight the locust menace and hopefully end it once and for all.
In a video posted on social media, the 100,000 team of ducks are seen lined up like army soldiers getting ready for war. After a few minutes, they are dispatched and can be seen running in one direction like trained soldiers.
Billions of locusts have swarmed from Africa to the Chinese border through India and Pakistan.
Chinese authorities have dispatched the 100,000 birds to its Xinjiang border in the far west of the country, where it meets Pakistan and India as the locusts continue to swarm eastwards.
Imran Khan, Pakistan’s Prime Minister, called the event “the worst locust attack in decades”.
I am very amazed and impressed at the solutions that China can come up with in the face of any challenges. Even with the threat of swarms of locusts invading China, China can mobilize the “army” of ducks to handle the locusts.

Billions of locust have already attacked crops in Africa potentially causing full crop failure and famine , I hadn’t read anything on locust attack on India or Pakistan crops, poor China already dealing with corona virus and now billions and billions of locust heading for China
