How on Gods Green Earth Do You Stop A Locust Plague

Can humans stop locust plagues? Can they stop these devastating swarms of insects from taking out entire years crop yields in minutes. Devastating thousands of square miles of fertile agriculture lands in only a few days? Is there a way?.Do we call in an air strike? Is there an easier method, as these locust swarms can by over 5 miles across and they are not such an easy target to stop? One online think tank recently brought up this issue.

Locust Plague researcher Warren Powers has some thoughts on how the locusts use physics to accomplish their mission and believes that this may hold the key to stopping them once and for all.Warren states; "I suspect the movement of air associated with the swarm could be identified. I suspect the downdraft could be verified and measured if it exists.

If there is a local downdraft, then a bunched swarm must be creating a toroidal or donut shaped air flow local to the swarm. If this donut shaped air motion accompanies the swarm, then a simple disruption of that air flow may also be used to disrupt the swarm, possibly a fire ball shot within the swarm would be efficiently distributed to each wing-set of each member of the swarm. There are petroleum products that will burn for extended periods of time, napalm, for instance.

I digress; hatred can lead to overkill.".A film on the Lake in Advance of the swarm may help.

If we sent out sound waves to disrupt their flight and then had an additional film on the lake that they were crossing this might be the double whammy needed to help us defeat the locust plague once and for all. Consider all this in 2006.

Micro MAV Swarms and Sound Wave Evading Measures - In the future our Military will use robotics in warfare.

Caring Of A Tie - If a tie could speak, it would implore you to treat it patiently for longevity.

The AllImportant College Application - H.

Leading Edge Eddy Vortex Inducers - Is there a better way to conserve energy to build a solar aircraft that can stay up indefinitely; like the Solar Powered Pathfinder, which could stay aloft for a month at a time only forever? More like a solar powered satellite in the atmosphere.

What Causes Locusts to Swarm - Many religions tell us that locusts swarm because the gods or god is angry.
