In what is now an all too familiar story, another fruit fly detection has been made at Loxton North.

PIRSA made the call yesterday, saying the latest detections are just outside of existing outbreak areas at Loxton North, with the new outbreak area named ‘Loxton North D’.

PIRSA’s Fruit Fly Response General Manager Nick Secomb said the new 'Loxton North D' fruit fly outbreak was declared after eight male fruit flies were found in monitoring traps in the area near a mandarin orchard. 

There's now five outbreak zones around the Loxton area, as PIRSA ramp up their efforts to remove the pest from the region.
