Best Answer

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.

What was the 8th plague given to the egyptians?

Locusts that devoured the land.Relevant verses from the Bible. All citations are NIV.Exodus Chapter 1112And the Lordsaid to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over Egypt so that locusts swarm over the land and devour everything growing in the fields, everything left by the hail.”13So Moses stretched out his staff over Egypt, and the Lordmade an east wind blow across the land all that day and all that night. By morning the wind had brought the locusts;14they invaded all Egypt and settled down in every area of the country in great numbers. Never before had there been such a plague of locusts, nor will there ever be again.15They covered all the ground until it was black. They devoured all that was left after the hail—everything growing in the fields and the fruit on the trees. Nothing green remained on tree or plant in all the land of Egypt.16Pharaoh quickly summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “I have sinned against the Lordyour God and against you.17Now forgive my sin once more and pray to the Lordyour God to take this deadly plague away from me.”

How do you complete episode 44 on pocket god?

1st of all, you enter the second room in the temple on apocalypse Island. Then you feed about 3 pygmies to the locust queen, which you do by dropping the pygmy into her hands. If you press and hold her stomach, a swarm of locusts will come out. You can gather the locusts in a swarm by pressing on the screen. Now here is the fun part. Playing catch: To lift the Pygmy bring up the locusts from under the pygmy. Then you can play catch by touching different areas of the screen. Also if you just speedily press random areas on the screen you will drop the pygmy. If you leave the screen alone for a while, the locusts will drop the Pygmy out of boredom. Leave it alone some more and the locusts will leave altogether. Fruit ninja!: you can slice pygmies by using the locusts as a blade. Just lift the pygmy up, and move your finger across the screen where the pygmy is. The Pygmy will be chopped in half. Actions: If you bring the locusts across the screen from the pygmy's back side, the locusts will engulf the Pygmy and carry away its bones Bloated and mutated: to fill up the Pygmy with locusts, bring the locusts across the pygmys front side, and the locusts will rush into the pygmies mouth, making him bloated. Touch the Pygmy to pop him. To mutate the Pygmy into a locust, bring down the locusts onto the Pygmy from above. The Pygmy will be mutated. Touch the mutated bug Pygmy and he will be SQUASHED! AHAHAHAHA! Alternitavely, you can leave the mutated pygmy alone for a bit and he will fly away, Well, there you have it. Hope this helps.
