Residents of Chatham Village, Point Fortin are complaining that the swarm of locusts that has been plaguing Strikers Village, has now spread into their community.

Malinda Chaitlal shared the above photo with CNC3 today.

She said: "And they made their way to Chatham Point Fortin. Why they (the authorities) don't get a helicopter and spray the place. It's not like its crawling insect it have wings and flies."

The locusts started affected residents in the area just over a week ago.

The Ministry of Agriculture has advised that it is addressing the problem.

Chatham also had a locust problem in 2014 which the Ministry of Agriculture eradicated.
