No new fruit fly interceptions

17 October 2019

Latest border interception information on fruit flies has been published in the October KVH risk update, showing that our biggest threat – the Queensland Fruit Fly – hasn’t been found at all since the start of the high-risk season which was 1 September 2019.

The new risk update also details the national fruit fly surveillance programme, which involves almost 8,000 pheromone traps checked each fortnight; and an update on operational activities in the Auckland fruit fly response.
