An army of ducks has been deployed to fight the locust crisis for Pakistan.
Pakistan was invaded by the locust swarm last year, which proceeded to lay waste to the country’s cotton crop and is now menacing the wheat harvest.
“Ducks like to stay in a group, so they’re easier to manage than chickens,” he said. A duck is also capable of eating more than 200 locusts per day, compared to just 70 for a chicken, Lu said. “They have three-times the combat capability,” he added.
China is planning to dispatch a 100,000-strong army of ducks to help Pakistan combat a massive locust infestation.
