Abstract

This bulletin reviews methods currently available or under development for the control of the desert locust within the geographical and ecological context of the pest. The environmental impacts of these control methods are described and a range of mitigative actions are reviewed, including the development of new technologies with reduced impact. The relevance and application of the concepts of integrated pest management to locust control are discussed. Existing procedures for assessment of environmental impacts arising from donor-funded locust control activities are reviewed and a proposal presented for regulating donor provision of pesticide assistance.
