Locust Outbreak in Libya and Algeria

English

In February 2012, a Desert Locust outbreak suddenly developed in southwest Libya along the border of Algeria and rapidly spread into adjacent areas of southeast Algeria. Gregarizing adults laid eggs throughout March in both countries. Monitoring and control operations are hampered by the remoteness of the area as well as heightened insecurity due to 2011 events in Libya.
