    Locusts in CCA - Bulletin N.69 2020
    Also available in:

    Locusts in CCA General situation in May 2020 Forecast for June 2020 Moroccan Locust (DMA) hopper development continued in Azerbaijan and Georgia and finished in most Central Asia (CA) countries followed by fledging, mating and egg-laying. In many countries, particularly in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, anti-locust campaign was seriously hampered by COVID-19, and some DMA infestations were not treated in time. As a result, swarm flights including transboundary ones took place in many areas in CA. Hopper development of the Italian Locust (CIT) started in most countries and will continue in June; in May the situation generally remained under control. In Caucasus, cool and wet weather slowed down hopper development of both CIT and DMA. Migratory Locust (LMI) hatching started in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Russian Federation; hopper development will occur in June. A total of over 600 000 ha were treated in May 2020, which is 50% more than in May 2019.

    Moroccan Locust (DMA) completed its natural cycle in all countries. Italian and Asian Migratory Locusts (CIT and LMI) were mating and egg-laying in most countries. Generally, the situation became calm. Control campaigns were winding down, except for Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation and Uzbekistan where treatments continued against CIT and LMI, as well as in Georgia and Kyrgyzstan where CIT infestations threatened crops and required protective insecticide treatments. An area of almost 300 000 ha was treated in July 2020. In total, about 1.8 million ha have been treated since the beginning of the campaign, which is close to 2019 level but slightly lower than the forecast for 2020. In most countries, COVID-19 pandemics created serious difficulties in implementing locust monitoring and control activities.

    Italian (CIT) and Asian Migratory (LMI) Locusts finished mating and egg-laying in most countries and started to die-off. The situation in August became calm for all species in most countries. A cautious situation with CIT still remains in Georgia. During the forecast period, CIT and LMI natural life cycles will come to an end. Control operations in August covered an area of 24 633 hectares (ha) in CCA, reaching about 1.93 million ha since the beginning of the 2021 campaign, which is similar to 2020.
