Although fire is certainly a great way to get rid of locusts it will only help you if you stick close to the camp fire, but little else beyond that. There are pesticides for farmers to use. In China they have discovered by using ducks (which love to eat constantly and love locusts) are curing their problem with locusts in leaps and bounds.

What are some plague myths?

Ignorance and myths helped the plague kill many more people than is should have. First myth is that the plague was only managed with fire. As a matter of fact, no matter what history says, experts are convinced that the Paris fire of 1666 was done in order to prevent a new plague. Running away as fast as possible from a place where an infected surfaced was another myth that helped the plague kill many more persons than it should really had. Fully washing clothes and bathing worked better than trying to run away since soap killed the bacteria that was able to travel with the persons running away.
