Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We initiated this pest risk analysis to assess the biosecurity risks posed by pests associated with cut flowers and foliage imported into Australia. Part 2 of the pest risk analysis assesses all arthropod pests, other than thrips, mites and aphids, which have been intercepted at the Australian border on imported cut flowers and foliage. The arthropod pests assessed in Part 2 include beetles, flies, bugs (other than aphids), wasps, bees, ants, moths and butterflies.

You are invited to provide comments on the draft report. In particular, on the proposed measures described in the report and any other measures that might provide equivalent risk management outcomes.

Submit your comments by 20 August 2020.

We will consider all comments before preparing the final report.
