With the brown marmorated stink bug season ending on April 30, imports out of Italy and the US will no longer require mandatory fumigation under this policy.
Brown marmorated stink bugs are not found in Australia and therefore it is imperaive that the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources upholds measures to ensure they are kept out during the high risk seasons. The bug feeds on fruit and vegetables and has the ability to severely damage our crops if introduced.
Aurora would like to thank everyone for their compliance during the 2017-2018 BMSB season. We will be sure to keep you all updated on any changes leading into the next BMSB season which will commence on 1 September, 2018.
