The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) is working to prevent the spread of Queensland fruit fly (Qfly), after the invasive pest was detected in Bayswater surveillance traps.
Qfly is a serious horticulture pest, which could impact the horticulture industry and home-grown fruit and vegetables.
Reports of suspected Qfly can be made to DPIRD’s Pest and Disease Information Service on 9368 3080, firstname.lastname@example.org or via the MyPestGuide Reporter app.
A full list of host fruit and vegetables and more Qfly advice is available at www.agric.wa.gov.au/qflyupdate.
Local Governments in the area are requested to promote this information to their residents.
