The invasion of winged insects in New York has been compared to the biblical plague. This is reported by the New York Post.
According to the publication, this analogy was made by local residents. Eyewitnesses note that insects are green. “New York is infested with insects right now and the sky is looking wild. The end is near,” said journalist John Haltiwanger. According to experts, these midges are one of the types of aphids. Insect specialist David Grimaldi recalled that the aphid is a common garden insect that feeds on plant sap and is a sign of a “healthy environment” and not the biblical end of the world. Earlier in the US state of Nevada, an invasion of Mormon crickets, which are known for practicing cannibalism, began. This phenomenon forced the inhabitants of the state to lock themselves in their homes.
