Eliminate locusts

The food crisis caused by locusts is a worldwide problem. 19 million people in Africa will be at risk of serious food insecurity. The locust disaster will reduce food production by 30% to 50%. Solar energy is used as an energy source. The product uses the principle of laser weapons to emit lasers. Multiple devices can be formed to form an anti-insect aerial firepower net to kill locusts to protect crops. The killed locusts can also be used as a source of soil fertilizer when they fall into the soil.
