Duck Army sent to destroy locusts

A troop of special Chinese ducks is being deployed to combat locusts.

China is helping neighbours Pakistan to fight a swarm of crop-eating pests that threaten regional food security.

At least 100,000 ducks are expected to be sent to Pakistan as early as the second half of this year to combat a desert locust outbreak.

The ducks are “biological weapons” and can be more effective than pesticides.

One duck is able to eat more than 200 locusts a day.

A trial will start in China’s western region of Xinjiang later this year before the ducks are sent to Pakistan.
