Mauritania + 6 others
FAO Desert Locust Bulletin No. 306 - 02 Apr 2004

General Situation during March 2004
Forecast until mid-May 2004

The Desert Locust situation continues to remain extremely serious in Northwest Africa. During March, new hopper bands and swarms formed in northern Mauritania where limited resources hampered control operations. Consequently, numerous swarms moved to the spring breeding areas in Morocco and Algeria and laid eggs that started to hatch at the end of the month. Hopper bands will form during April and May in both countries and additional swarms are likely to arrive from Mauritania.
