HOUSEHOLDS in urban areas across the Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area (GSPFA) are being urged to keep up their efforts in supporting local industries in the fight against fruit fly by hanging out their trap and amulet as soon as they arrive. 

GSPFA regional co-ordinator Deidre Jaensch said while there had been strong community support for the distribution of the fruit fly trap packages to urban residents earlier this month there had been some confusion about how the traps work.

“The male and female traps last for only about three months – this means the new ones replace the old ones and they need to be installed as soon as they arrive to get the most out of the trap,” Ms Jaensch said.
