Keith Cressman says : “It’s one of the world’s best sources of honey. So, beekeepers know that chemical pesticides disrupt their beekeeping, and all the bee-keepers have Kalashnikovs, so it’s a rather dicey place to do chemical control.

Keith Cressman added : “The winds are protecting Bangladesh and the locusts have retreated,” “The winds are from the east to the west, so it is impossible for the locusts to move against them to reach Bangladesh. So this is very good news for Bangladesh. Your risk of receiving desert locust is extremely low and as we continue throughout this month, the risk gets even lower because of the monsoon. During the monsoon, it gets very humid and they get infected by pathogens and die naturally because they are completely outside of their desert habitat they don’t do well in that situation” External link

Keith Cressman says : “When you have these loud sounds the locusts scatter so they’re no longer a very good target for the control teams, so we are trying to encourage people to not play loud music, bang pots and pans or beep car horns or shoot them with bullets. None of that works,” External link

Keith Cressman says : “It’s one of the world’s best sources of honey. So, beekeepers know that chemical pesticides disrupt their beekeeping, and all the bee-keepers have Kalashnikovs, so it’s a rather dicey place to do chemical control. Yemen is one of the places where bio-pesticides would work well,” External link

Keith Cressman added : “The winds are protecting Bangladesh and the locusts have retreated,” “The winds are from the east to the west, so it is impossible for the locusts to move against them to reach Bangladesh. So this is very good news for Bangladesh. Your risk of receiving desert locust is extremely low and as we continue throughout this month, the risk gets even lower because of the monsoon. During the monsoon, it gets very humid and they get infected by pathogens and die naturally because they are completely outside of their desert habitat they don’t do well in that situation” External link

Keith Cressman said : “There are bio-pesticides but farmers don’t have access to the alternatives or even the chemical ones at times. For these reasons, FAO does not encourage locust control by farmers. Desert locusts prefer undisturbed areas their hopper bands march. Farmers can dig a trench around their fields that serve the function of moats. The hopper bands fall into these trenches and they can be buried, preventing from entering the fields,” External link
