SMALL groups of locusts have hatched in the north east of South Australia.The latest edition of the Locust Bulletin by the Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry reports the locusts are expected to produced localised nymphal bands in the Jamestown, Orroroo and Burra areas this month.
Locust densities remain very low in other parts of South australia, Queensland and New South Wales.
The outlook is for low population levels in most all regions in the absence of significant rainfall.
However, there was moderate to heavy falls in part of central west Queensland where population numbers could increase.
There is a low risk of significant infrestations developing in Queensland, NSW, Victoria or far northern South Australia this month or next month.
