Spray planes are working overtime and so far have overcome millions of locusts that have invaded southern Israel, with much smaller numbers reported in northern Israel.
Planes sprayed fields in the Negev overnight and early Wednesday morning before the locusts could feast on fields of wheat and vegetables.
Tzfat (Safed) residents were surprised to see a small horde of locusts in their neighborhoods, but there is no threat to nearby fields. Agriculture Ministry officials pointed out that locusts cause virtually no damage in small numbers, but the threat remains in the south.
