No fruit flies found

28 October 2021

We’re in the high-risk season for fruit flies, with surveillance activities and trap monitoring underway.

The good news is that new data from Biosecurity New Zealand shows there have been no detections for exotic fruit flies since the season began (1 September). Read more in the latest monthly KVH risk update here.

KVH has also developed a helpful guide for growers detailing the likely sequence of events if a fruit fly response were to occur in a kiwifruit growing region. You can download the guide here or contact us if you would like a copy printed and sent to you.
