SJ Fruit Fly Project

Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis capitata) or Med Fly as it is commonly referred to is a priority pest for the PHBG in the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, where it is a declared pest.

Report card

A monthly report card which summarised trapping data captured in the SJ Fly Cast was developed to assist landholders to manage fruit fly infestations.

The newsletter was developed in collaboration between the PHBG, University of WA and DPIRD.
