Farmers in Orange Grove say there is an infestation of the Giant African Snail

Giant African SnailThe Ministry of Agriculture is being called upon to step in and help treat with an infestation of the Giant African Snail at the Orange Grove Estate.

One farmer, who opted to stay anonymous, told News Power Now that there are now hundreds of thousands of snails on the estate.

He said many crops are being destroyed daily.

The concerned farmer said when the issue was discovered three weeks ago a complaint was made to the ministry but nothing significant has since been done.

He said hundreds of farmers in the area are being affected.
