Situation Update: Locust Crisis in Madagascar - 25 September 2013

Situation Update: Locust Crisis in Madagascar - 25 September 2013
Sep 2013

During the past few weeks, prevailing southwesterly winds and vegetation drying-­‐out favored the movement of swarms from the outbreak area (southwest of Madagascar) towards the western and northeastern parts of the invasion area.

More reports of swarms as well as damage to young plants of rice and maize were reported from Maintirano, Tsiroanomandidy, Soavinandriana and Faratsiho areas. In addition, some non-­‐gregarious locust populations already matured, and egg-­‐laying started in the central part of the outbreak area (Ranohira and Vavalovo).
