    Background: Disaster in the form of the locust, one of man's worst enemies, strikes the Canary Isles.

    Motor, hand and air spraying is helping the islanders to destroy the locusts which have already caused several million pesetas damage.

    On one beach alone thirty boat-loads of deed locusts were collected. Potato and tomato crops were completely destroyed.

    The locusts, blown in from Africa, added their destruction to heavy damage already caused to the Canaries during a recent Hurricane.
