      A flying disaster

      飛行災禍

      Earthquakes. Floods. Hurricanes. Tsunamis. It seems that every day we read about at least one of these somewhere in the world. But every year, somewhere, another kind of disaster causes great damage to plants and people. It's something much smaller and not so well-known as an earthquake or a tsunaml--it's an insect called the locust.

      地震。洪水。颶風。海嘯。似乎每天我們都會在世界上的某個地方了解到其中的一個。但是每年,在某個地方,另一種災難會對植物和人類造成巨大的破壞,這種災難要小得多,并且不像地震或海嘯那樣廣為人知——它是一種叫做蝗蟲的昆蟲。


      The locust usually does things alone-it lives on its own and eats on its own. But, sometimes, something changes the way nature works. When the numbeI of locusts increases somewhere and there are lots of plants to eat, the locusts get together in 'swarms'.

      蝗蟲通常單獨行動——它自己生活,自己進食。但有時候,有些東西改變了自然的運作方式。當某個地方蝗蟲數量增加,有很多植物可以食用時,蝗蟲就會“成群結隊”聚集在一起。


      Perhaps the most dangerous locust is the desert locust. It is found in Africa. the Middle East, and Asia in about 60 countries altogether. When desert locusts swarm, they bring problems to one-tenth of all the humans in the world.

      也許最危險的蝗蟲是沙漠蝗。它在非洲、中東和亞洲總共約60個國家被發現。當沙漠蝗蟲成群結隊的時候,它們給世界上十分之一的人口帶來了麻煩。


      The numbers are huge and frightening. A swarm of desert locusts can be 1,200 km2 in size - imagine an area that is over 20 kilometres wide and 50 kilometres long, full of locusts! And there can be 50 million locusts in each square kilometre. Each locust eats its own weight in plants every day - so a swarm of desert locusts can eat more than 150 million kilos of food in one day. They can also fly very long distances-in 1954 a swarm of locusts from northwest Africa flew thousands of miles to finally land in Great Britain!

      這些數字巨大而可怕。一群沙漠蝗蟲的規??蛇_1200平方公里——想象一下,一個20公里寬、50公里長的區域里到處都是蝗蟲!每平方公里可能有五千萬只蝗蟲。每只蝗蟲每天要吃掉與自己體重相當的植物——因此,一大群沙漠蝗蟲一天可以吃掉1.5億公斤以上的食物。它們還能飛很長的距離。1954年,一群蝗蟲從非洲西北部飛了幾千英里,最終降落在英國。


      It's no wonder that farmers in many countries of the world fear the desert locust more than snakes and spiders. It's the desert locust that destroys the harvest and brings hunger to people all over the world.

      難怪世界上許多國家的農民比起蛇和蜘蛛更害怕沙漠蝗蟲。正是沙漠蝗蟲破壞了莊稼,給全世界人民帶來了饑餓。
