The spur-throated locust can be readily distinguished from other pest species of locusts and grasshoppers by its large size and the presence of a spur between the front legs... Plagues of spur-throated locusts are less frequent than other pest species of locusts; migrations can occur into cropping areas... Once locusts have fledged or are 'flying', aerial spraying of agricultural chemicals is the only efficient method of control...

Locusts then migrate on prevailing weather systems, invading adjacent agricultural areas, including those in southern Queensland... The ability of locusts to invade previously uninfested areas and lay eggs within days, combined with the mobility of flying swarms, makes swarm control particularly difficult for individual landholders... The Australian Plague Locust Commission (APLC) will implement control measures only where the commission considers the locusts to be in sufficient numbers to present an interstate threat...

The Australian Plague Locust Commission (APLC) will implement control measures only where the commission considers the locusts to be in sufficient numbers to present an interstate threat... Although all bands are worthy of control, the best results are achieved if control is undertaken when hoppers are in the smallest area... Factors influencing the movement of hopper bands and the effectiveness of control include: Density - hoppers at densities below 30 square metres move very little and don't form bands...
