Italian Locust (CIT) fledging started in CA countries, and its hopper development continued in Caucasus and the Russian Federation. Migratory Locust (LMI) hopper development continued in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Russian Federation and Uzbekistan. A dangerous situation was reported for CIT in Georgia, because locust infestations appeared close to crop fields.
