The Last Line of Defence
Landholders must be vigilant in protecting all crops and pastures from spring locust hatchings by using targeted applications of registered or permitted insecticides. ChemCert Accreditation allows you to access and spray the insecticides.
Do not underestimate the damage from either hoppers or adult locusts in crops or pastures.
Locusts know no boundaries. There are three levels of locust control – strategic interstate (Australian Plague Locust Commission), state level (state departments) and local (landholders). Effective control on all three levels is vital to widespread plague containment.
