Desert Locust Bulletin, No 468, September 2017
Situation remains calm, locusts shift to winter breeding areas

The current Desert Locust situation continues to remain calm in all countries.

Despite good rainfall and favourable breeding conditions in the past few months, very few locusts have been detected during recent surveys in the summer breeding areas of the northern Sahel in West Africa and Sudan, and along both sides of the Indo-Pakistan border.

In Mauritania, low numbers of adults shifted from the south to the west of the country where small-scale breeding will increase during October that could extend to areas in Western Sahara where good rains fell after mid-September.

Low numbers of adults will move from the interior of Sudan to the winter breeding areas on the Red Sea coast in Sudan where small-scale breeding will occur there as well as on the coasts of Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Eritrea and perhaps southeast Egypt from October onwards.
