Plague of insects in Australia

SWARMS of winged creepy crawlies have invaded the Gold Coast, leaving scientists and locals puzzled as to where they came from. Hot on the heels of tonnes of water beetles taking over the Coast's beaches, droves of dragonflies are buzzing in.

Jessica Guertin, of Nobby Beach, could not believe her eyes when she went for a walk near her home, with countless dragonflies swarming "as far as the eye could see".

"The entire sky was just filled with dragonflies. I've never seen anything like it," she said.

"It happened around sunset. Everybody was just standing on the beach dumbfounded.

Exodus 8:21...behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

Watch for more insect related problems in coming months and years.
