    Moroccan Locust (DMA) natural cycle completed in all Caucasus and Central Asian (CCA) countries while mating and egg-laying continued in the Russian Federation. The Italian Locust (CIT) and the Asian Migratory Locust (LMI) started mating and egg-laying in CCA. The situation with DMA was considered dangerous only in the north Caucasus Federal District of the Russian Federation. It was classified as caution for CIT in Georgia and Kyrgyzstan, as well as for CIT and LMI in Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation. It became calm for other species or in the other countries. Summer surveys of adults and egg-laying sites continued in all countries. Control operations in July covered 513  121  hectares (ha) in CCA and in total 2 590 326 ha since the beginning of the 2023 campaign, which is 37% higher than during the last two campaigns (1 891 926 ha in 2022 and 1 898 300 ha in 2021). During the forecast period, DMA life cycle will be completed in the Russian Federation and CIT life cycle will come to an end in Caucasus, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. CIT and LMI mating and egg-laying will continue in Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation.

    2020
    Also available in:

    General situation during August 2020 Forecast for September 2020 Italian and Asian Migratory Locusts (CIT and LMI) finished mating and egg-laying and started to die-off in most countries and generally, the situation was calm. In five countries – Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan – anti-locust treatments had finished in July. In the other five countries, campaign continued. About 10 000 ha were treated in Georgia, Kyrgyzstan and the Russian Federation each; additionally, small areas were treated in Azerbaijan and Armenia, which brought the area treated in August to 30 794 ha and the total area of anti-locust treatments during 2020 campaign to just under two million hectares, which is close to 2019 level but slightly lower than the forecast for 2020. In general, COVID-19 pandemics created difficulties in implementing locust monitoring and control activities in CCA.
