Situations Update as of 4 April
A few immature swarms have formed in the past few days in Northeast Sudan near the Red Sea and the border of Egypt. Several more swarms are expected to form on both sides of the border where hopper bands are currently present. Some of these swarms could cross the Red Sea to Saudi Arabia while others could move further inland in northern Sudan and southern Egypt. In Algeria, egg-laying is in progress in El Oued province in the northeastern Sahara.
The Desert Locust situation continues to improve in Northwest Africa where control operations and locust infestations keep declining in Algeria and Morocco. Nevertheless, some adults have matured and started laying eggs. Hatching will begin in about two to three weeks, followed by the formation of a limited number of hopper bands. A few immature swarms persist in Guinea. In northeast Sudan, a small number of immature swarms have formed and more are expected in the coming weeks in the general area including adjacent parts of Egypt.
