The Drudge Report reported swarms of grasshoppers in the western U.S. Agricultural experts are warning of damage “unparalleled in decades.” The states of Nevada, Utah and Idaho are particularly bad, with no signs of easing. Expert Mike Cooper, in The Idaho Statesman, cited records that indicated the current swarm to be the largest since World War II. Utah authorities estimate that the plague could devour 2.5 million hectares. Environmental groups have filed lawsuits to prevent the use of any insecticides by state officials.
