Most of the current Desert Locust activity is concentrated along both sides of the Chad/Sudan border and on the Red Sea coastal plains in northeast Eritrea. In the past few days, there have been a few unconfi rmed reports of swarms in Chad. Ground control operations are in progress in the three countries. Local breeding is underway in the interior of Yemen. The situation is calmer in the western part of the Sahel in West Africa where only low numbers of solitarious adults have been detected in Mauritania, Mali and Niger.

General Situation as of 21 July 2005

The Desert Locust situation continues to be a cause of concern in Chad and western Sudan where breeding is in progress and there is a risk of an outbreak developing. Low numbers of new swarms could start to form in eastern Chad in the coming weeks. So far, very few locusts have been seen in southern Mauritania, northern Mali and Niger but good rains have fallen in most of these areas and ecological conditions are favourable for breeding. Seasonal forecasts suggest that good rainfall will continue in August and September.

Weekly Introduction:
Locust Update

The report from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations on the locust situation in western Africa was last updated on March 16 (http://www.fao.org/NEWS/GLOBAL/locusts/Locuhome.htm). While some swarms continue in the region, looking toward this spring, the FAO expects that Northwest Africa will be invaded this spring due to failed winter rains and breeding in Mauritania.
