Current Biosecurity Alerts
Queensland fruit fly
Tasmania is free of fruit fly and it is important for our horticultural industries, our economy and way of life that we remain vigilant for signs of fruit fly.
Routine biosecurity measures continue around the state that contribute to protecting Tasmania from introduced pests and diseases, including:
- regular checking of the permanent fruit fly trap network across Tasmania.
- imposing strict requirements for the import of produce before it enters Tasmania.
- conducting targeted inspections of produce as it enters Tasmania.
- checking passengers, luggage, freight and mail at the border.
If you see what you think may be signs of Queensland fruit fly contact Biosecurity Tasmania immediately on (03) 6165 3777.
