Tricia, a Fruit Fly Community Support Officer is here to teach you a little bit about a flying insect called Queensland Fruit Fly.

 

There are lots of good insects that we find in our backyards – but Queensland fruit fly is a pest for our fruit growers and our fruit growing areas. So we’re going to have a closer look at fruit fly and why it’s especially a problem for us here in the Murray Valley area.
