- We came to conclusion that the effects area by an Asian locust in the Kurmangazy District this year will increase by 40%. Those are hard-to-get, remote islands and the coast of the Caspian Sea that are untreated by pesticides,- says the Director of the branch Khamidolla Davletyarov. - We settled the days and the areas of treatment of the territory by hang-gliders. Timely treatment will allow to avoid the dispersal of insects.
Meanwhile, the area affected by another type - the Italian locust, according to entomologists’ forecasts for this year will decrease by 38%. Contrary to “Asian” locusts the “Italian” doesn't like the humidity and prefers to “settle” in the deserts of Narynkum and Taisoigan.
