Desert locust control operations and their environmental impacts


Bulletin Natural Resources Institute ( 67): vi + 42 pp.
Desert locust control operations and their environmental impacts
Methods currently available or under development for the control of Schistocerca gregaria are reviewed in the context of the geographical distribution and ecology of the acridid. The environmental impacts of these control methods are described, and a range of mitigative actions reviewed. The relevance and application of the concepts of integrated pest management to locust control are discussed.
