Locust Killer / Product or application

Locust Killer
Locust Killer

To solve the food crisis and hunger caused by locust plagues.
Design this "locust killer" without pesticides to kill locusts in order to achieve a win-win situation for people and the environment that do not destroy the soil and eliminate locusts.
Recent studies have found that high odor molecular substance 4-vinylanisole ether can attract locusts.By distributing 4-VA, the locusts fly to the "Locust Killer" gathering, which is crushed after being caught in the fan.Debris can be fed back to the land as fertilizer.
