Queensland fruit fly is the main fruit fly pest species that damages intact fruit on the tree (some other common species only attack damaged fruit). It is responsible for millions of dollars of damage to commercial crops every year.
Unfortunately, the outbreaks often begin in backyards, so it’s every backyard grower’s responsibility to understand, prevent and control this pest. It can be incredibly demoralising, and even scary, to face a pest that seems so insidious and successful, but rest assured, there ARE solutions.
With a combination of knowledge, understanding, and a range of different techniques, after completing this course you’ll be able to confidently protect your crops and maintain your food security, while ensuring you’re not providing a fruit fly breeding ground that could impact on commercial farmers.
