Where in Western Australia has EHB been found?

In WA, a single female EHB was found in 2004, emerging from a structural untreated beam in a Perth house.

Surveillance has found EHB populations mainly in dead pine trees and deadwood parts of live pine trees.

Community awareness to look for signs of EHB activity in household furniture has confirmed a limited number of EHB infestations.

Map of EHB Restricted Movement Zones (RMZs) which act as buffers around sites where infestations have occured may be viewed to check your particular suburb (the majority of these sites have been disinfested but remain as RMZs).
