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

Moroccan Locust (DMA) lifecycle came to an end in southern parts of Central Asia (CA), while fledging, mating and egg-laying continued in Caucasus and other parts of CA. 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. During the forecast period, DMA breeding will continue in Kazakhstan and Russian Federation while CIT hopper development will continue in Caucasus, Russian Federation and Kazakhstan. LMI hopper development will continue in northern and western regions of Kazakhstan and Russian Federation and fledging will occur in other regions. In total this year, 1 478 345 hectares (ha) have been treated in all Caucasus and CA (CCA) till the end of June, which is for about 10% lower than in 2021  at the same period.
