<p class="Component-root-0-2-40 Component-p-0-2-32">The Ningbo Evening News had said the legion of lotus-eating waterfowl would be sent from the eastern province of Zhejiang following the earlier dispatch of a team of Chinese experts to Pakistan to advise on a response to the infestation, <strong>which is being called the worst in 20 years</strong>. -<a href="https://apnews.com/a429ec0b2edb3aa0bb9f41fc94b26bd6">AP</a></p>

<p>This is the second year Pakistan has been invaded by locusts, which have destroyed the country's cotton crop and is now threatening their wheat harvest.</p>

<p>Locusts are also <strong>infesting Saudi Arabia</strong> right now.</p>
