Waiting For the Next Summer Havoc: Locust Attacks

While agricultural scientists in the United States believe that they have chemicals powerful enough to withstand attacks by hordes of locusts, those in other nations know better.  In addition to the most destructive years imaginable––including massive earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, and other Global Warming anomalies––Australia also combats locusts.  The same is the case in Afghanistan, Eritrea, Bulgaria, India, Spain’s Canary Islands and even Canada.  Locust can fly some 70 miles in a day, and they easily adapt to the changing climates of Global Warming.  So many nations around the world fear locust attacks that this year the United Nations and the World Bank initiated efforts to defeat marauding locusts.

 Currently the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is gearing up to assist nations in Central Asia and the Caucasus to save millions of acres of farmland from locust attacks.  According to panarmenian.net, “Locusts are a serious threat for agriculture, food security and livelihoods in both regions including adjacent areas of northern Afghanistan and the southern Russian Federation.”  Three different types of locusts––Italian, Moroccan and Migratory––will easily fly from one nation to another attacking at least ten countries in the region:  Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

 Some types of locusts attack annually; others on multi-year schedules.  In the Congo, Locust appear once in every 14 years.  But Australia expects locust invasions so often that each region has an official locust commissioner.  Gordon Berg, the Victorian plague locust commissioner, reports that warm and wet weather makes that continent most desirable to the pests.  Last year, Australia and New South Wales endured the worse locust attacks in 30 years.  This year, Berg announces that large numbers of rather enormous spur-throated locusts are invading Victoria for the first time.  Much larger than normal plague locusts, spur-throated locusts are stripping trees and vines everywhere they move.

 Some scientists expect that the higher temperatures and wet weather Global Warming brings to this nation provides the perfect setting for the kinds of locust attacks in the U.S. in the early 20th century.  Thus, they expect locust swarms here as now in Europe, Africa and the Australian continent in the very near future.  Regular readers this blog site remember its stress on the various insect judgments (including locusts) God sent against Egypt.  These relentless bug invasions forced that nation to free Israel as recorded in Exodus, chapters 5 to 14.  Bible prophecies refer to the experience of Israel’s deliverance from Egypt as symbolic examples of end-time battles between God’s forces and Satan’s followers.  Professing Christians must be ready to withstand such swarms of judgment in these last days.
