General Aerial Operation On Today – Wednesday

General Aerial Operation On Today – Wednesday, 18 February 2004

The scheduled general aerial operation, against painted apple moth, is ON today - Wednesday, 18 February 2004.

Today’s general aerial operation, using two small aircraft, will take place in the 5 high-risk areas - Hobsonville, Waikumete Cemetery, Motions/Meola Creek, Ranui/Swanson & Riverpark – to treat a total area of less than a 1,000 hectares.

Even though the aircraft may be in the air there will be NO treatment between 8am and 9am as children travel to school.

As a guide, given continued favourable weather and the completion of an operation in a single day, then it is highly likely that: Hobsonville and Riverpark will be treated first starting at approximately 6.25am Motions/Meola Creek then Waikumete Cemetery then Ranui/Swanson will follow Treatment in the Riverpark and Ranui/Swanson helicopter areas will start before 8.00am and resume at 9.00am after the school break All treatments are expected to finish by mid morning.

Up-to-date details and a map of the aerial treatment areas is available on-line at www.maf.govt.nz/paintedapplemoth or the public can call the free information line 0800 96 96 96 for an information pack

That’s because as the National leadership contest comes down to a choice between Simon Bridges and Christopher Luxon, the only decisions to be made on Tuesday are over who gets to be leader, and who gets the Finance job...
