More sterile fruit flies will be released locally, forming part of a new strategy to eradicate the pest.

20 million flies will be released this week from Utes, with an aerial attack to commence in September.

Just this week PIRSA confirmed another local detection, as the region has now has 14 declared outbreak zones.

Minister for Primary industries Clare Scriven said “fruit fly response tactics are ramping up now because flies that hibernated over winter will become more active as spring approaches".
