No General Aerial Operation,
Against The Painted
Apple Moth, Tomorrow - Wednesday, 12 May
There will be NO aerial operation, against painted apple moth, tomorrow – Wednesday, 12 May.
This final scheduled aerial operation, to treat the one remaining small area in Ranui/Swanson, has been postponed. Weather forecasts continue to predict high winds throughout the week and rain is likely tomorrow, making conditions unsuitable for an aerial operation.
Weather conditions will be closely monitored over the next 24 hours and the situation will be reviewed tomorrow, as to an operation starting on Thursday, 13 May or on the next day that weather permits.
Following the completion of this final aerial operation, covering 253 hectares in Ranui/Swanson, there are no further areas scheduled for treatment.
