Bad news for farmers in Northern Iloilo: Rice black bugs have infested parts of Sara, San Dionisio, Ajuy, and Concepcion towns, the Provincial Agriculture Office said.

Assistant provincial agriculturist Elias Sandig said rice black bugs were also sighted in Banate town, which is at risk of possible damage if these are not controlled.

Sandig noted that except for Banate, there is no standing rice crop in the northern Iloilo areas. But he added these bugs can travel from one town to another (https://thedailyguardian.net/local-news/pesticides-led-to-infestation-rice-black-bugs-plague-northern-iloilo-towns/).
