Biosecurity in the news
Motel cleaners hailed as horticultural heroes was the headline for several stories in New Zealand and Australian media recently. The articles detailed finds of BMSB earlier this year and highlighted the importance of the bugs being spotted and reported to MPI.
Stories like these continue to raise the profile of not only our most unwanted pests but also the need for everyone to be on the lookout and know what to do if they find an anything unusual.
Here at KVH our key message is to ‘catch it, snap it, report it’ – no matter how unsure people are about what they’ve found - and we hope to see more positive news media like this championing the same message.
