KRABI — Residents were lighting firecrackers Sunday in their latest attempt to disperse thousands of swallows that swarmed into a southern town, hanging on electric cables and defecating onto the road below.

 

Fifty households at an Ao Luek district intersection in Krabi province have reportedly been affected by the mass of birds of unknown origin, which villagers said spent the night perched on electricity cables at the intersection. They said they were concerned about the smell of the excrements and that those with allergies or respiratory problems complained, but authorities have not taken action so far.

Idiots. Absolute idiots, and they wonder why they  have dengue and  malaria epidemics.  The swallow diet is comprised mainly of flying insects, especially mosquitoes.

They are assembling prior to migrating, hopefully to a place where people will appreciate their consumption of winged insect pests.
