Swarm of Locusts Hit Stavropol Region of Southern Russia

A local Russian man recorded a swarm of locusts flying towards him, while a second man was seen trying to fight against the swarm that hit Stavropol region, on Wednesday. The video shows the insects quickly approaching the camera as the second man tries in vain to keep them at bay.

A large migratory swarm of locusts are devastating crops in Stavropol. Efforts to control the locusts or grasshoppers have measure as much as 350 miles with some areas spraying pesticides every day.

Stavropol has a humid continental climate with hot summers and short, but cold, winters. By Russia’s norm the winters in this region of southwest Russia are mild.
