This manual on trapping guidelines for fruit flies of economic importance is based on recommendations by a multi-national group of fruit fly workers. It provides information on fruit fly survey tools to NPPOs and industry in FAO and IAEA Member States. These guidelines will be regularly updated as survey techniques continue to improve and experience is gained in fruit fly control programmes.

Keeping an eye on pests how to report a suspect pest
Any unusual plant pest, disease or weed should be reported.
Reporting hotlines operate in both Australia and New Zealand (numbers shown below).
Pests can also be reported using apps, such as MyPestGuide™ for Australia, that allow you to submit a photo of the pest or symptoms.
Every report is taken seriously and handled confidentially. Management of calls varies in different areas, but to the same end.
