FAO Desert Locust Update - 14 Jun 2004

General Situation as of 14 June 2004
The Desert Locust situation continues to remain extremely alarming despite intensive aerial and ground control operations against hopper bands in Northwest Africa. New groups of adults are forming in Morocco, Algeria and Libya. Several swarms were seen near the summer breeding areas in southern Mauritania. In the coming weeks, locust numbers are expected to increase dramatically in the Sahel in West Africa as swarms that form and escape current control operations in Northwest Africa move southwards and appear in areas of recent rainfall.

FAO Desert Locust Bulletin No. 308 - 02 Jun 2004

General Situation during May 2004
