Queensland fruit fly surveillance in Greater Sunraysia
The Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area (GSPFA) is in north-western Victoria and south-western New South Wales. The GSPFA was established to provide local table grape, stone fruit and citrus industries with the control over Queensland fruit fly (QFF) management in the region. In partnership with industry, we are undertaking a program of eradication of Queensland fruit fly in the GSPFA – with the aim of reinstating each outbreak area to area freedom.
QFF traps are 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 fortnightly throughout the year.
Additional QFF 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.
