Host fruits often ripen at the same time and produce excess fruit that must be harvested quickly. Prune your fruit tree to allow for easy harvesting. Pruning also makes the use of netting, cover sprays and baiting easier.
No single action will stop the spread of Queensland Fruit Fly. An integrated approach is essential to reduce the spread and protect our region’s horticultural region and our home grown produce. Regular pruning of host trees is a simple and effective measure to help control the spread.
Pick, prune and protect against fruit fly.
