We are conducting a group pest risk analysis (PRA) for soft and hard scale insects on fresh fruit, vegetable, cut-flower and foliage imports.

Scale insects can cause considerable economic consequences across a range of crops by reducing yield, quality and marketability.

We have now released a draft report for this group PRA.

You are invited to provide comments on the draft report. In particular on:

  • relevant technical issues
  • scale insects and the viruses assessed
  • identified risk management measures
  • equivalent risk management outcomes.

Submit your comments by 4 February 2021.

To make a submission:

We will consider all comments before preparing the final report.
