Fruit fly surveillance in Victoria

An approach in the Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area (PFA) is to use fruit fly traps placed in a grid system to monitor this pest.

In towns, fruit fly traps are positioned 400 metres apart, while in orchards they are placed 1 kilometre apart. These traps are cleared weekly from 1 November to 31 May, and fortnightly from 1 June to 31 October.

Additional fruit fly monitoring programs are in place in the Goulburn Murray Valley and Yarra Valley. For more information, see our action on QFF in regional Victoria page.

Queensland Fruit Fly (QFF) outbreaks have occurred in the following region:

  • Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area (PFA)

You can use this application to determine whether you are in one of the declared outbreak areas within the Greater Sunraysia PFA. The table below lists dates of last detection and potential reinstatement dates for each of the outbreak areas within these regions.

This information can be used as the basis for the signing of intrastate and interstate movement of host produce within the fruit fly pest free areas of all states. Please refer to the domestic trade requirements page for more details.

Enquiries regarding international host product movement must be directed to the Australian Government Department of Agriculture website.

Greater Sunraysia pest free area

In partnership with industry, we are undertaking a program of eradication of Queensland fruit fly in the Greater Sunraysia PFA — with the aim of reinstating each outbreak area to area freedom.

Town or Area Date of last detection Reinstatement date one generation & 28 days or 12 weeks, whichever is longer (WA, SA, VIC and Tas)
