Areas with plush greenery were the first ones to be attacked by the swarms of locusts. People living in complexes and high rise buildings of Gurgaon shared videos and images of the same. Other areas including MG Road, IFFCO Chowk, Sukhrali, Chakkarpur, Sikandarpur, etc got covered with these locust swarms.

These crop-eating desert locusts were first seen in an outbreak that happened in several areas of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab etc.

The residents are doing their best to keep the locusts away from their houses, by beating utensils, keeping the windows shut and making all sorts of possible noises so that they are able to safeguard themselves against these insects.

The administration of Gurgaon reported, "A swarm of locusts has reached Mahendragarh district and is expected to reach Rewari border. Under the circumstances, Gurugram administration has issued an advisory that people must keep their windows shut and make noise by clanging tin boxes, utensils and dhol so that locusts can't settle at a place."

They further added, "Farmers must also keep their pumps ready so that they can be used when needed." Just last month, the chief secretary Keshni Anand Arora had asked the agriculture department, to take all sorts of necessary precaution to steer clear of the potential locust attack in the area.

These insects are said to have a great appetite, as they feed on crops and plants, creating major damage and ultimately destroying a large number of agricultural farms.

Twitter is now flooded with images and videos of residents, sharing the locust attack that happened in their areas.
