The current targeted winter aerial operation against the painted apple moth will start, as planned, this morning (Tuesday 26 August) at 7am.

As a guide if the operation is completed today, it is expected that Waikumete and Riverpark areas will be treated from 7am followed by Motions/Meola Creek. There will be no spraying during 8am to 9am when most children travel to school. Aerial operations in Hobsonville and Ranui will start from 9am and weather permitting all spraying should be finished by 12 noon.
