Swarms of locusts continued to threaten crops in Israel on Monday as day break saw Ministry of Agriculture spray planes continuing to battle the infestation. 

The head of the Ramat Hanegev municipality Shmuel Rifman called on the President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi to spray the locust swarms while they were still in the Sinai and before they landed in Israel, Israel Radio reported. Rifman requested Morsi's action in a letter that was sent through the Israeli embassy in Cairo. Rifman also asked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for action on the matter with regard to Egyptian cooperation, the Radio reported.
