    As these locusts are flying far higher than normal, can flame throwers mounted on drones be used to destroy such high flying locust swarms? 🐲🐾

    I think that locusts can be destroyed by using sprays in a very large spray movement launched by Govts. They can also ask the army to use long distance flame throwers , and also study how other countries have fout this menance .

    Moses biblical plagues were local to Egypt "Or else, if you refuse to let My people go, behold, tomorrow I will bring locusts into your territory. And they shall cover the face of the earth, so that no one will be able to see the earth; and they shall eat the residue of what is left, which remains to you from the hail, and they shall eat every tree which grows up for you out of the field. They shall fill your houses, the houses of all your servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians-which neither your fathers nor your fathers’ fathers have seen, since the day that they were on the earth to this day.’ ”
    Exodus 10:4‭-‬6 NKJV
    bible.com/bible/114/exo.10.4-6.NKJV Book of Revelation plagues are GLOBAL and will impact the world like coronavirus. Book of Revelation plagues progressively get worst. Jesus said so "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places."
    Matthew 24:7 NKJV

    Catch tiddi by putting big canvas suction cups of 50 to 100 feet square side...like via cum cleaners socks insects...this will suck tiddi and store in canvas bags... meat eaters in world eat roasted tiddi as plants protein rich delicacy.....catching tiddi is better than scaring away by sounds of spraying which may harm crops.

    Locust should be sprayed with sticky sprays which are harmless to birds, sticks their wings and stops them flying, NOT HARMFUL PESTICIDES. DO NOT BE STUPID YOU WILL KILL BIRDS AND MAKE THE PROBLEM BIGGER:::USE HARMLESS STICKY SPRAYS

    This is disgusting I was a part of this and witnessed this attack and I swear to god I was freaked out when I woke up to the sounds and my bedroom window was open and swoosh came the locusts. Through this attack I was cuddled up in a corner of my room,duct taped all the small openings and ate ramen for the rest of the week, it was really scary

    Sign of the times folks.
    Jesus is coming back soon to establish law and order the way He intended it.
    There's so much darkness and evil in the world. He's not happy with us at all.
    This world needs to repent and turn away from all it's evil sinful ways.
    This is only the beginning of sorrows.
    All the crazy non stop chaos happenings are direct results of taking God out of pretty much everything including prayer in school.

    Just eat them? Get a big light at night, a big truck with some sort of vacuum.
    Grind them into dust and make food with them! They probably have far more nutrients than the crops these people are losing..
    When there is a negative, find a positive solution 🙌 I pray many lives are not without the basic necessities by the end of 2020 😇

    There is only true God and this God is begging for you to turn your direction towards him for once in your life. He wants you to call out to him but unfortunately mankind has been trying to hide his name with satans help. But God loves you and want you to draw close to him as he calls out your personal name please call out on his personal name that has been erased from the Bible. Psalms 83:18 JEHOVAH JEHOVAH JEHOVAH is the personal name of God in the English dialect. To learn the fascinated meaning behind Jehovah personal name is just the beginning of understanding the powerful person behind that name and close relationship one can have with our creator by calling out Jehovah. Even when Jesus was praying he asked At John12:28 Father, glorify your name.” Then a voice came out of heaven: “I have glorified it and will glorify it again. Even in the Lord’s Prayer Jesus said at Luke 11:2 So he said to them: “Whenever you pray, say: ‘Father, let your NAME be sanctified. Let your Kingdom come.

      Lucious Lucs that would be stupid, Armageddon is the judgment of those not doing the will of Jesus’s dad and that has not happened yet. Though it is determined who will and wont survive beforehand . But there is not anything before that. Even though you say you are a disbelieving. Have you ever studied the prophecy’s history and the ones recorded in the manuscripts to see if they ever came true?

    There is only one way to escape the wrath of God, that is repenting of our sins and turning to our Lord Jesus Christ, the slain Lamb of God. He died for our sins that we might be saved if only we believed in the atonement.....FLEE THE WRATH TO COME....ONLY ONE KING WHO IS ABOVE ALL, OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
    1 Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
    1 Cor 1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

I might not believe in a god but I do believe in mother nature.
