Pest page up and running

16 April 2020

There’s a new Spotted Lanternfly (SLF) web page on the KVH website, containing all you need to know about one of kiwifruit’s most unwanted pests.

The page includes images, video, fact sheets and SLF reference material to help growers understand the risk this pest poses to the industry and how to identify it (or its eggs).

One of the most recent publications now available via the page is a KVH summary of the latest Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) SLF pest risk analysis, which assesses likely entry pathways, the chances of establishment and spread, and surveillance and management options. The brief and easy-to-read summary is available here.
