Updated: Feb 6
End Time News - An enormous swarm of Locusts began eating everything in its path from Africa to the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia. It seems to be under control at the moment unless it continues to spread. An enormous swarm of locusts that has been eating up everything in its path in Africa, they have crossed the Red Sea into Saudi Arabia.
For now, the Arabians have it under control but if it continues it will hurt the people of Yemen who have dealt with so much already.
Locusts have challenged Africa for many years, it creates famine, and now it has crossed to Red Sae and threatens to plague Saudi Arabia.
The swarm has entered the borders of the United Arab Emirates. The (ADAFSA) control sprayed over twenty one thousand acres of infested regions.
Despite the efforts of the highest experts to stem the infestation, locusts struck on three continents in 2020. A swarm estimated at 40 million creatures skilled Argentina, spreading to other countries also . Another swarm hit Asia.
Desert locusts are always present within the region but are typically solitary. Favorable breeding conditions generate swarms and their behavior changes as they form groups which will be miles long and contain a billion individuals.
Swarms are often take up dozens of square kilometers in size. A swarm of only one square kilometer eats an equivalent amount of food in at some point as 35,000 people. The swarms can also travel 93 miles each day making efforts to regulate an epidemic even harder . Officials warned that further rains within the region could lead on to a good larger outbreak.
The infestation of grasshoppers occurs within the area every few years but is markedly different than the more destructive locust. Though all locusts are grasshoppers with no taxonomic distinction made between them, not all grasshoppers are locusts. Locusts are a particular species of short-horned grasshoppers that have a swarming phase, usually in response to overcrowding.
If the swarm spreads south, this might come as a boon to the neighboring country of Yemen. Yemen had been suffering a growing famine crisis as a results of the war.
In May of last year, UNICEF described Yemen as “the largest humanitarian crisis within the world”, estimates say that 80% of the population, or over 24 million people, were in need of some sort of humanitarian assistance.
Though locusts consume crops, previous infestations are utilized to ease the famine conditions. within the summer of 2019, locusts invaded Yemen just before the month-long Ramadan fast. The insects are caught by the Yemenis who traditionally eat them roasted as a protein served them along side some rice and vegetables. Farmers were seen selling Locusts along the roadside. Yemenis claim that eating has health benefits which including easing diabetes and hypertension.
Human consumption of insects is strictly forbidden by the Torah, However locusts are the exception and are considered kosher.
"Of these you'll eat the following: locusts of each variety; all sorts of bald locust; crickets of each variety; and every one sorts of grasshopper. But all other winged swarming things that have four legs shall be an abomination for you." Leviticus 11:22-23
It is interesting to notice that last week, Jews in synagogues all round the world were reading Parsha Bo, the section of the Torah describing the plague of locusts that struck Egypt before the Exodus.
This current incarnation considerably resembles the Biblical plague, coming as a part of a wave of catastrophes that left the land of Egypt deprived of any food.
Locusts invaded all the land of Egypt and settled within all the territory of Egypt during a thick mass; never before had there been numerous , nor will there ever be numerous again. They covered the face of the entire land, in order that the land was darkened, and that they ate all the plants within the land and every one the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Not a green thing remained, neither tree nor plant of the sector , through all the land of Egypt.
According to Jewish tradition and supported a verse in Micah, the ten-plagues will reappear before the Messiah.
"I will show him wondrous deeds As within the days once you sallied forth from the land of Egypt." Micah 7:15
