No new fruit flies found
1 April 2021

We’re still in the high-risk season for fruit flies, with monitoring and site trapping continuing.

The good news is that new data from Biosecurity New Zealand shows there were no detections of exotic fruit flies for the latest reporting period (February). Read more in the latest of the monthly KVH risk updates here.

KVH has also developed a helpful guide for growers detailing the likely sequence of events if a fruit fly response were to occur in a kiwifruit growing region. You can download the guide here or contact us if you would like a copy printed and sent to you.
