CityNews – Villagers of Ban Nong Hoi village have been plagued by thousands of small insects, covering trees, plants, electricity poles, walls, homes and vehicles.


The insects are increasingly troubling for the locals. However, according to village headman, Chaichana Suksakulpanya, the insects have been around for about two months already.

The unidentified insects make annoying noises when flying and also produce a foul odor.

According to the mayor of Mae Raem sub district, Wichai Chaiwitnon, the spraying of insecticide has no effect on the insects which only seem to be multiplying.

The district has now asked for help from specialists to solve the infestation.

The insects are expected to affect the villager’s day to day lives and also become a deterrent for tourists visiting the area, which is close to Mon Jam.
