General Aerial Operation On Today

General Aerial Operation On Today – Tuesday 20 April 2004

The scheduled general aerial operation, against painted apple moth, is ON today – Tuesday 20 April 2004.

Today’s general aerial operation will take place in the small risk area in Ranui/Swanson. Scheduled aerial operations have been scaled down to this one remaining risk area covering 253 hectares.

As a guide, given favourable weather and the completion of an operation in a single day, then it is highly likely that treatment in Ranui/Swanson will start at first light, around 6.30am, and finish by approximately 8am this morning.

As children are on school holidays at present, there will be no stopping at 8am, if the operation needs to continue beyond this point, as children will not be travelling to school.

Up-to-date details and a map of the scaled down aerial treatment area is available online at http://www.maf.govt.nz/paintedapplemoth or the public can call the free information line
0800 96 96 96 for details.

One of the best ways to keep up-to-date with the status of aerial operations is to register for text or email updates. To register people can call the free information line or register online on the residents’ page at the above website.

Status updates on general aerial operations are broadcast on More FM 91.8FM and Newstalk ZB 1080AM or 89.4FM.
