Despite the intensive ground and aerial  control operations in Samburu, Marsabit, Isiolo, Turkana and other Counties, fledging and development of several large and dense immature swarms are continuing. Ground teams are using all means of control equipment including vehicle mounted sprayers, while several survey helicopters and spray aircraft are also battling the emerging swarms and  the widely distributed and dense hopper bands. These coordinated efforts are expected to decrease the number of the developing swarms and also reduce their likely migration to southern and western Ethiopia, South Sudan, eastern and northern Uganda during April and in the coming months.
