DL Situation
Desert Locust Bulletin, No 466, July 2017
The current Desert Locust situation remains calm.

Control operations were undertaken in Iran and, to a lesser extent, in Algeria where small-scale breeding had occurred in June and July. Low numbers of solitarious adults are present in the summer breeding areas of Mauritania, Sudan and along both sides of the Indo-Pakistan border.

Good rains have fallen in all summer breeding areas of the Sahel in West Africa and Sudan, in the interior of Yemen and along the Indo-Pakistan border. Consequently, small-scale breeding is expected to occur in all of these areas during August, causing locust numbers to increase slightly.

Regular surveys should be conducted in all areas wherever possible
