Keith Cressman added: “So we had this situation in the Peninsula, where locusts were increasing without any stop or control. Once it dried out in those areas about a year ago, swarms started to form and they left those areas some moving north to the interior of Saudi Arabia, to Iran, then to India and Pakistan. But another portion of the swarm moved south into Yemen this past year, where the conflict did not allow for any control measures. So there was more breeding in Yemen and they started leaving the country in June crossing to the Horn of Africa,” External link
