The grasshopper group was first seen in Rajasthan on 21 May 2019. The government made a lot of efforts to stop the group of locusts but failed and after that many other groups came to Rajasthan and destroyed crops regularly. Locust came to Jaisalmer in May end. Rajasthan has witnessed three generations of breeding instead of the regular one generation.
Farmers also say that even after spraying chemicals they are very difficult to control. Because their number is so high that even chemicals are unable to do anything. If she comes to a farmer's field, then the farmer cannot do anything except to see his crop ending in front of his eyes, although some farmers also stop the locust party from sitting in their field by playing a dole or utensil. After talking with the farmers of Rajasthan, it came to know that locusts group is 8 kilometers long and 8 kilometers wide, that if it sat in someone's field, then it would collapse the entire field in just 5 minutes.
