A number of fruit fly outbreaks have been declared in metropolitan Adelaide by PIRSA, (refer table at end) including some that have overlapping quarantine boundaries. An eradication program has been enacted for each of these outbreaks.
Upon declaration of an outbreak, around each discovery point, a 1.5 km Outbreak Area as well as a further 7.5km Suspension Area for Mediterranean fruit fly (Medfly) or 15km Suspension Area for Queensland fruit fly (Qfly) around each detection site are setup. Collectively the Outbreak Areas and Suspension Areas are known as the “Fruit Fly Affected Areas”.
For more information from PIRSA relating to the metropolitan Adelaide outbreaks, refer here.
To report suspected fruit fly, phone the Fruit Fly Hotline: 1300 666 010.
Vinehealth Australia will no longer continue to produce updated Metro Adelaide Fruit Fly outbreak maps or advise industry of ongoing detections as of 21 April 2021, but will resume this activity in late 2021 in the lead up to the 2022 vintage.
