Uruguay is on alert after Argentina eliminates a locust swarm

Leonardo Oliveira, director of agricultural services at the Ministry of Agriculture in Uruguay, said that the country will continue to monitor the border with Argentina after the Argentine authorities managed to eliminate a large locust swarm that was 20 km from the border with Uruguay.

Bloomberg News reported that an unlimited number of locusts survived the spraying of pesticides last week.

“We are still on high alert,” Oliveira said, in press releases.
