Queensland fruit fly response continues 05.03.15
05 March 2015
The total number of fruit flies found stands at 13. Two further male fruit flies were trapped within the controlled area over the last two days. There is no new evidence to suggest the situation is anything more than a localised population of fruit fly that can be eradicated.
Field work continues with a focus on the surveillance trapping system. Field teams are also applying insecticide bait throughout the Controlled Area, informing residents about the controls and inspecting gardens and rubbish bins.
