Painted Apple Moth Op Resumes In Hobsonville

Painted Apple Moth Operation Resumes In Hobsonville Today - Wednesday 22 October

The current spring aerial operation, against the painted apple moth, resumes today - Wednesday 22 October.

Today’s aerial operation will take place in the 600-hectare area of Hobsonville not treated yesterday.

Because of increasing wind a decision was made at 1pm yesterday to suspend the operation.

A small fixed wing aircraft will be used today to treat the remaining area, which is located at the southern end of the Hobsonville aerial operation area.

The operation will resume at first light and is expected to finish before 10am. There will be no treatment, even though the aircraft may be in the air, during 8 - 9am the time most children travel to school. The public can call the free information line 0800 96 96 96 for status updates and for general information about the programme.

People can also visit the resident’s page at www.maf.govt.nz/paintedapplemoth to register for email or text message updates on the status of the aerial operation. A map of the spring 6,500-hectare operation area and up-to-date information about the painted apple moth eradication programme is also available on the website.
