Report a pest today!
The information gathered by you helps to strengthen and support Australia’s growers to access and gain new trade markets.
MyPestGuide was developed to encourage everyone (public, industry and government) to report observations of any common, interesting or possible exotic pests as well as the absence of pests across Australia.
Get to know the MyPestGuideTM family
Check out the MyPestGuide family of FREE support tools built just for you! They are:
- a dedicated reporting app MyPestGuide Reporter
- three pest identification field guides
- a decision management tool for aphids in crops CropScout
- and your very own community website: mypestguide.agric.wa.gov.au
Together these tools help everyone to report the organisms they see to the department and learn from the department about these organisms.
Join the MyPestGuideTM community
A knowledgeable community can get on top of pest problems quickly! So, reduce the cost of eradicating and managing pests long-term. Join in and be a part of the pest reporting community.
Help monitor, manage and keep exotic pests out of Australia.
The MyPestguide on-line community web page is where the shared reports are mapped and available for the community to learn more about what pests are being reported.
This is to educate the community in pests and encourage everyone to become involved in reporting and defending Australia’s agriculture industry and protecting the natural environment from exotic pests.
Take part in a science activity
The Biosecurity Blitz is an outdoor activity for the entire WA community. This year, there's a fantastic opportunity for schools to join forces and participate in the new School Challenge! For further information and to register, visit the School Challenge page.
The Pantry Blitz is an indoor science activity where participants sign up to receive a free sticky trap and find out what pests are hiding in their kitchen cupboards.
The department took part in Mini Beasts in My City as part of National Science Week in 2018. Check back next year to see if it's being run again!
