There is a low forecast risk of a widespread Australian Plague Locust infestation developing between now and mid-autumn in the Riverland and Murraylands according to the Australian Plague Locust Commission (APLC).

In the North East Pastoral and Flinders areas, this risk rating increases to low-moderate due to successful breeding under favourable habitat conditions and migration.
