Situation update

  • Over the weekend (7/8 March), MPI’s field laboratory detected Queensland fruit fly larvae in windfall fruit collected from two properties nearby to the original affected property.
  • There are now a total of four properties in very close proximity that are receiving ground treatment for fruit fly. This includes targeted ground spraying and use of insecticide granules.
  • No adult flies were detected over the weekend (7/8 March) and the total number of adult Queensland fruit flies captured in Auckland remains at 14.
  • The situation remains that MPI is working to eradicate a localised population of fruit fly.
  • A response end date to the operation cannot be confirmed, but it is expected to take several months.
