Eco Locusts Trap / device for locust plague

Eco Locusts Trap
Eco Locusts Trap

We found that the plague-affected countries face severe food shortages and livelihood problems. Therefore, we designed "Eco Locusts Trap " that can reduce the damage of locusts when it invade.

The trap structure is like a creel, which encloses a small part of the planting area, forming a natural trap. The weaving involves less technique and no extra glueing, so it can be easily learnt by anyone at any age. The area of locust activity is reduced because locusts are not easy to fly out after entering the trap. Farmers can then spray fungus, biological pesticide or soda water into the trap to take down the swarm efficiently.
