Tree locust menace closing in on Eritrea

As the prevalence of tree locust is steadily increasing, the Ministry of Agriculture, on 26 March, called on all bodies concerned to actively conduct surveillance to help control the menace

Tree locusts are spotted every year, mostly in the Gash Barka region as well as in the Anseba, Northern Red Sea and Southern regions. Tedros Seyum, head of migrating pests at the Ministry of Agriculture, highlighted the damage caused by tree locusts, not only on trees, but also on vegetables and other crops.
