Nakuru County fighting new locust attack

The County Government of Nakuru yesterday conducted aerial and ground spraying on desert locusts in Bahati and Subukia sub counties.

This is aimed at ensuring the pests do not move to other parts of the County.

In January this year, the County placed an early warning and preventive control system that was tasked to study the behaviour and biology of the desert locusts, predict their movement and ensure spraying is done in a controlled manner.

Residents have been advised to avoid consuming the insects and instead alert Agriculture officers as soon as the pests are sighted in their areas.
