    The Locust Pesticide Referee Group (LPRG) is an independent body of experts that advises FAO on the efficacy and environmental impact of different pesticides for locust control. This advice is based on a critical review of reports submitted by industry, research institutes, plant protection departments, of other available literature, and on the experience of its members and of FAO experts. The resulting advice systematically lists pesticides suitable for locust control from the scientific point of view.

    Practical guidelines on pesticide risk reduction for locust control in Caucasus and Central Asia 2019
    The Guidelines discuss the risks of insecticide handling and use before, during and after locust control campaigns, as well as measures that can be taken to minimize those risks. The Guidelines target three types of staff: 1) Decision makers and campaign organizers – i.e. senior staff in the locust control unit – who require guidance on organizational aspects of risk reduction before, during and after the control campaign; 2) Locust control staff – i.e. control team supervisors, pesticide applicators, drivers, store keepers – who require guidance on best practices and risk reduction measures during the campaign; 3) Monitoring staff – i.e. from specialized human health and environmental monitoring teams – who need guidance and best practices for the monitoring of insecticide application, efficacy, human health and environmental aspects of locust control operations. The Guidelines are structured following the main stages of a locust control campaign. First, the risk reduction measures during the preparation of the campaign are discussed, including insecticide selection, contingency plans, Personal Protective Equipment, human health and the environmental monitoring and training. The second section describes the environmental and health risks during locust control operations. Insecticide transport and storage, use of Personal Protective Equipment, insecticide applications, empty container management, and monitoring of human health and environmental risks are covered. The third section discusses activities after the end of the control campaign, such as management of empty containers, remaining pesticides, or follow-up monitoring. The Selected References at the end of the document provide links to various topics that are discussed in these guidelines.
