A number of farmers in different parts of SA have reported seeing increasing numbers of plague locusts within their areas.
On the Eyre Peninsula, Wudinna-based agronomist Leigh Davis says numbers have been in higher than normal, possibly due to recent heavy rainfall in the area.
The Australian Plague Locust Commission, which has been out monitoring in the past week in some areas, says the numbers are not concerning at this stage.
"There are numbers around but they're not in any great density that would cause any significant concern," director Chris Adriaansen said.
"The level of pasture growth has been quite phenomenal due to increased rainfall and, in fact, in quite a few areas the pasture is actually too thick for locusts to be successful in them."
