PAM General Aerial Operation On Today

Painted Apple Moth General Aerial Operation On Today ¨C Thursday, 18 December

The general aerial operation, against the painted apple moth, is ON today ¨C Thursday, 18 December.

During summer, general aerial operations take place in 5 small high-risk areas ¨C Hobsonville, Ranui/Swanson, Riverpark, Waikumete Cemetery and Motions/Meola Creek - covering in total less than 1,000 hectares.

A small aircraft will carry out treatments in these areas at approximately 21-day intervals. At the same time a helicopter will treat the two difficult areas within Ranui/Swanson and Riverpark.

As a guide, given favourable weather and the completion of an operation in a single day then it is highly likely that:

¡ñ Hobsonville and Motions/Meola Creek will be treated first starting at approximately 5.30 am.

¡ñ Waikumete Cemetery then Ranui/Swanson then Riverpark will follow.


¡ñ During the school term, even though the aircraft may be in the air, there will
be NO treatment between 8am and 9am as children travel to school.

¡ñ Treatment in the helicopter areas within Ranui/Swanson and Riverpark will start and finish before 8am.

¡ñ All treatments will be completed by mid morning.

To check on the status of a general aerial operation people can listen to MoreFM (91.8FM) or Newstalk ZB (1080AM). The public can also call the free information line 0800 96 96 96 for details or visit the residents¡¯ page online at www.maf.govt.nz/paintedapplemoth to register for email or text message updates.

A map of the summer operation area and up-to-date information about the painted apple moth eradication programme is also available on the website.

Gordon Campbell: On How National’s ”New” Welfare Plan Resurrects A Past Failure


Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
