We have finalised the group pest risk analysis for soft and hard scale insects on fresh fruit, vegetable, cut flower and foliage imports.

Soft and hard scale insects are regarded as major plant pests. They can cause damage across a range of crops by reducing yield, quality and marketability, requiring ongoing field management and control.

All comments received on the draft group pest risk analysis were considered in finalising the risk analysis. You can read the final group risk analysis report. The final group risk analysis report outlines the identified biosecurity risks associated with scale insect pests, and proposed risk management measures.
