Queensland Fruit Fly

Queensland fruit fly has arrived in Banyule. If left unchecked it will destroy our ability to produce fresh fruit and vegetables. Now is the perfect time to put out Wild May to attract overwintering male QFF. Place fresh Wild May liquid in QFF containers and position on the east side of the tree, 1.2-2m high within the canopy. 


Macleod Organic Community Garden
