According to Locust Analytics- by PlantVillage at Penn State in collaboration with UN FAO and partners Swarm Trajectory Prediction, the nearest Locust Swarm from Nepal are located at Jhashi, Orai and Bhura of Utter Pradesh, located at the UP-MP border which are 550 to 600 Km from Bhairahawa. The swarm at Orai is 195 ha, Jhashi is 25 ha and Bhura is about 60 ha. The swarm is predicted to move towards west.
With the predicted wind movement in Nepal from East to West, it is not likely that the locust swarms enter into Nepal. But still the movement is being regularly monitored and updated. For details kindly follow the Map below
