Tomato Growers Plagued by Locusts in Australia

(NECN/ABC Australia) - Farmers in Australia are dealing with huge losses from a swarm of locusts.

The bugs have destroyed fields of tomato plants in the area of Victoria.

Some tomato growers are spraying their crops with sunscreen in the hopes that the white color will keep the pests away.

The locusts are said to be more attracted to the green color of the plants.
