The north of the province of Santa Fe has no respite. Floods, dengue, coronavirus... now, locusts too. We tell you about this invasion.
The negative streak in the north of the province of Santa Fe does not give a truce. Stalked by problems, he seems to be suffering biblical plagues: droughts, floods, dengue , coronavirus. The last one? A sleeve of lobsters settled in the region .
These bugs walked around the very important agro-industrial area of Reconquista. They had been arrested in Paraje el Algarrobal and then in El Sombrerito.
The National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA) next to the Seine s a carry out constant monitoring of this “black cloud” of insects. It also flew over the towns of Lanteri and Engineer Chanourdie. In fact, the first official data on their entry into the province were reported by these agencies, also thanks to the contributions of producers in the region.
According to the above-mentioned institutions, the province of Santafesina is classified as a danger zone.
In recent days, the national institution reported that the lobster sleeve lifted in a northeast direction. This would transfer the problem to other regions.
A manga of young lobsters can eat, in one day, the equivalent of 35,000 people . Another chilling way to say it is that, in one day, you can eat an amount of food equal to two thousand cows . How many lobsters would we be talking about? They assure that, in a square kilometer, the usual size of a sleeve, travel 40 million. The Argentine population, in locusts.
Thus, the invasion can be devastating for all kinds of plantations. They leave them literally deserted.
Several specialists have been studying the movement of these locusts who, yet, have not left Santa Fe. The good news , which could be added to the impending move of the manga, is that they would be “half old girls.” Scientists claim that they are not in their most voracious cycle. That is, they would not eat significantly, as they would in a state of development.
This fact, without a doubt, gives hope to producers in the north, who fear for the future of their crops .
If this thing about “veteran lobsters” were like that, the Santa Fe crops would be relatively out of danger. But in that case, the important thing is to follow them closely to see well where they are going to establish their definitive base. In their current life cycle, they should be looking for a place to settle and reproduce. There would come the new generations of locusts. These, yes, will be young. Voracious . Lethal for the field.
