Fruit Fly Prevention

Understand the outbreak restrictions

When a fruit fly is found, we establish an inner outbreak area (red area) and a larger suspension area (yellow area) around the detection site of fruit fly.

Restrictions are currently in place to limit the movement of some fruit and vegetables within these areas.

This may affect where you live, work or travel. Find out more about the zones that impact you

The correct disposal of at-risk fruit and vegetables is important to minimise the spread and irradicate this pest from our district. Check out any Temporary Waste Management Practices that may be required to assist in this outcome.
