The following is almost entirely the author's summary. The behaviour of swarming adults of Schistocerca gregaria (Forsk.) during reproduction was studied in relation to environmental conditions at some 30 sites in Eritrea Cited by: Ecological studies on oviposition by swarms of the desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria Forskål) in eastern Africa.

The desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria, Forskål) has the ability to change its behavior and physiology, in particular its appearance, in response to environmental conditions, and transform itself from a harmless solitarious individual to part of a collective mass of insects that form a cohesive swarm.

9, 1 – Several species of grasshoppers swarm as locusts in different parts of the world, on all continents except Antarctica and North America: For example, the Australian plague locust (Chortoicetes terminifera) swarms across Australia. The desert locust. Oviposition responses of gregarious adult gravid females of the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria to sand previously used for oviposition by gregarious females (contaminated sand, with eggs and froth removed) and to sterilized sand (noncontaminated sand) were compared in bioassays.

Gregarious females preferentially oviposited into contaminated sand. Biological Control of Locusts and Grasshoppers. cloud to control desert locust swarms (), Ecological studies on many species have shown that a suite. In the late eighties large-scale control operations were carried out to control a major desert locust upsurge in Africa.

For the first time since the banning of organochlorine pesticides these operations relied mainly on non-persistent pesticides such as organophosphates and pyrethroids. The amount of pesticides sprayed and the area covered were probably the highest in the history of locust.

The following is based on the authors' summary of the three studies reported. The variations in the number of eggs per pod laid by females of Schistocerca gregaria (Forsk.) in egg-fields in eastern Africa and Arabia are considered in relation to the history of the population, environmental.
