Locusts in Caucasus and Central Asia
Moroccan Locust (DMA), Tajikistan 2008 ©FAO/A. Monard

 

Hot and dry weather accelerated Moroccan Locust (DMA) development and late-instar hoppers and adults prevailed in its populations. In the southern areas of Central Asia (CA) its life cycle came to an end while swarm flights, mating and egg-laying continued elsewhere. During the forecast period, DMA egg-laying will subside and adults will die off everywhere. Italian Locust (CIT) and Migratory Locust (LMI) hopper development was in progress in all countries except Afghanistan and fledging occurred at the end of the month. For both CIT and LMI, mating and egg-laying will take place during forecast period. In total, about one million ha were treated in CCA countries in June and about 1.6 million ha since the beginning of the 2019 campaign. This is less than a half of the area treated in the same period in 2018. The largest declines in infested and treated areas took place in Kazakhstan and Russia.

General situation from November 2018 to January 2019 Forecast until mid-March 2019
Natural cycles of the three locust species – Italian Locust (CIT), Migratory Locust (LMI) and Moroccan Locust (DMA) ended in late summer/early autumn in all countries with eggs laid in the soil, where they overwinter (embryonic diapause).  During the forecast period, no development is expected as no hatching will occur. ...
