• Grasshoppers, locusts destroying Italian farmland


    It's a destructive crop infestation of biblical proportions.

    Farmers in Sardinia, Italy, are complaining of grasshoppers and locusts that are swarming the Italian island and destroying farmlands.

    Footage from Nuoro in the center of Sardinia showed millions of what are believed to be grasshoppers crowding a field of grass, a tree and a building.
