Growers must not be afraid to report suspect finds
21 September 2017

We understand that reporting a potential biosecurity threat can create anxiety for some growers, who may worry about potential implications or movement controls that may result. Remember, there are no likely market access implications from Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) but the production impact is vast.

The sooner you alert us, the more we can do to help you. Early detection is key to eradiction – if we don’t report and miss this window, any one of a number of unwanted pests could establish and be a challenge we have to deal with forever.
