The Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) has recently advised that much of metropolitan Adelaide and some areas of the Riverland are in fruit fly outbreak.
PIRSA has introduced restrictions as part of the State Government’s response to the current outbreaks and to the long-term goal of preventing fruit fly from becoming an established pest in South Australia.
The restrictions are effective immediately and will be in place until at least Thursday 15 April 2021.
If parents have any queries as to which fruit or fruiting vegetables are affected, it is recommended to visit www.pir.sa.gov.au/fruitfly.
Alternatively, please see the fruit fly host checklist below summarising the fruit and fruiting vegetables that can be infected by fruit fly.
