"We're encouraging people to hang up their fruit fly traps now because it won't be long before fruit flies start to move."

"We get fruit fly in monitoring traps at the end of August, start of September."

Anyone unable to attend, or anyone looking for further information can go to, or can contact the Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area Head Office on (03) 5022 0327.
