    Regional Locust Bulletin No. 55
    mei/18
    2018
    Also available in:

    Moroccan Locust (DMA) hopper development was in progress in Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation while it was coming to an end in Azerbaijan and Georgia as well as in southern Central Asian (CA) countries where fledging and even mating had already started. Cross-border movements of adult groups were reported. During the forecast period, DMA breeding will generalize in all those countries and the species will start disappearing in southern CA. Italian Locust (CIT) hatching occurred and hopper development was in progress in all countries except Azerbaijan and Afghanistan, where it was not reported as a pest. Migratory Locust (LMI) hatching started in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. For both CIT and LMI, fledging will start during the forecast period. Since the beginning of the national campaigns, more than 1 442 000 ha have been treated mainly against DMA hopper bands.

    Also available in:

    Moroccan Locust (DMA) fledging and mating started in all Central Asia (CA) as well as egg-laying mainly in the southern parts. DMA hopper development continued in Azerbaijan, Georgia and the Russian Federation. The DMA situation was classified as cautious in most countries where it is present, but as dangerous in Kyrgyzstan due to outbreaks in some southern districts. Around mid-May, swarm flights, including across borders, were reported by Afghanistan and Tajikistan, where additional control operations were carried out. Italian Locust (CIT) hatching started and hopper development continued in most Caucasus and Central Asia (CCA) countries. Migratory Locust (LMI) hatching was reported in Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation. During the forecast period, the DMA lifecycle will come to an end in CA, but mating and egg-laying will happen in Caucasus and the Russian Federation. CIT hopper development will continue in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, the Russian Federation and northern regions of Kazakhstan. CIT fledging will occur in other regions of Kazakhstan, and also in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. LMI hopper development will continue in Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation. In total, 1 049 172 hectares (ha) have been treated in CCA from the beginning of the 2024 campaign until the end of May, which is 35 percent higher compared to the same period in 2023 (778 220 ha).
