As 400 billion locusts approach China from the India-Pakistan border…
100,000 “duck troops” are gathering to prepare for the potential emergency and devour the insect plague.
China is massively hit by the coronavirus. But another plague is about to hit the Middle Kingdom: Locusts, billions of locusts, currently wreaking havoc in East Africa, Pakistan and India.
While they are killing almost all of their chickens, China has deployed 100,000 ducks to its borders with Pakistan and India in Xinjiang, the far west part of the country. So why not use chickens also?

These brown ducks, “duck troops” for Chinese media, are fond of insects and have been already used in prior locust invasions.
Some farmers even say they are more effective than pesticides as a juvenile duck can swallow locusts on more than 4m² of land per day.
Well I am sure there will be a lot more duck foie gras next Christmas. (Click to Source)
