Diversity of natural climatic conditions in Central Asia leads to the mass development and spread of cross-border pests, especially locusts, in these provinces. This requires monitoring studies to determine the species composition of endangered locusts that migrate from one state to another in transboundary areas and among them the most major pest species that pose a threat to agricultural crops. Therefore, this article identifies the species composition of locusts found in the border areas of Uzbekistan with neighboring republics of Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan, including harmful species. The results of the use of geographic information system (GIS) technologies in monitoring the spread of locusts in the cross-border areas of Surkhandarya, Kashkadarya, Jizzakh and Namangan provinces are presented.
