Queensland Fruit Fly 

Pest of the month - April

April’s Pest of the Month, courtesy of Auckland Airport, is the Queensland fruit fly (QFF). This pest is found throughout eastern Australia and can infect more than 200 different types of fruit and vegetables. If the QFF establishes in New Zealand, it will jeopardise our $5 billion horticulture industry. 
The QFF could sneak its way into NZ inside a piece of fruit infested with eggs or maggots. Remember, if you or any of your teams are travelling overseas, make sure you leave all fruit behind as you leave to reduce the risk of it hitchhiking its way to NZ with you! If you find any fruit you’ve forgotten about in your hand luggage, dispose of it in the marked biosecurity bins at the airport. 
If you think you’ve found any exotic pest or disease, this can be reported to Biosecurity New Zealand at or by freephone 0800 80 99 66.
