Another swarm of locusts entered Israel, spurring concerns that they will continue to infest the country for several weeks.
A new swarm was discovered in southern Israel on Saturday.
Locusts have been discovered mating and laying eggs throughout Israel's South, Globes reported, citing the Ministry of Agriculture.
The ministry said it will concentrate on the new swarms and spray the other locations later, even after the eggs are hatched, since the newly hatched locusts cannot fly. New swarms could come from several directions.
According to the ministry, the locusts have not caused great damage to crops.
