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.
