と ウィルスな サバクトビバッタ・・・がく〜(落胆した顔)
BEIJING (Reuters) -
China could face a desert locust
invasion, a government body
warned on Monday, urging local
authorities to prepare for the
possible arrival of the voracious
insects from neighboring
Pakistan and India.

The risk of swarms entering the
country is low, although China
will be hampered in tracking
the locusts by a lack of monitoring
techniques and little knowledge of
migration patterns, the National
Forestry and Grassland Admini-
strations said on its website.

Locust swarms could enter the Tibet
region from Pakistan and India, or
the southwestern province of
Yunnan through Myanmar,
depending on climate conditions,
the notice said. Swarms could
also fly across Kazakhstan and
into China's Xinjiang region.

Authorities in the western region,
which also borders Pakistan, said
mountains and the absence of
tropical and sub-tropical deserts
have reduced the chances of
locusts migrating into the area,
but such a possibility will increase
in June and July if outbreaks can
not be effectively controlled
overseas, Xinhua reported on Monday.

Customs at Khunjerab, a pass between
China and Pakistan in southwestern
Xinjiang, have started monitoring
surrounding areas within 2 km for
locusts. They are inspecting or
sterilizing vehicles and goods crossing
the border, targeting locust adults
that might come along or soil and
plants that contain the insects eggs,
according to the state media.

The desert locusts have already
ravaged crops and pastures in
several countries in east Africa and
swarms have spread into India and

Locust swarms can fly up to 150 km
(90 miles) a day with the wind, and
adult insects can consume roughly
their own weight in fresh food per day.

Beijing has set up a task force that
will meet this month to monitor and
act on any locust invasion, the
government body said.

Local forestry and grassland admini-
strations "must be fully aware of
the extreme importance of prevention
and control work against locusts," it

They should store pesticides and
equipment and have personnel
ready to take immediate and
effective measures once locusts
are detected, it added.
