Blitz on European house borer!
The Biosecurity Blitz is an annual event hosted by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, running from 19 October to 16 November 2018. It is an opportunity for you to join in and report as many interesting or damaging pests as possible across Western Australia over a month.
This year, one of the pests targeted is EHB. It has already been found in some parts of the Perth metropolitan area, and community reporting of possible EHB signs during the Biosecurity Blitz (or afterwards) will be useful to confirm current distribution.
European house borer flight season September to April
Help us stop the spread of EHB during flight season by learning to spot the signs of EHB infestation on your property. Check out our interactive map to see if you live within a restricted movement zone.
