Brown Marmorated Stink Bug

 

Please read important information below regarding the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug season:

 

In response to the rapid expansion of BMSB throughout Europe and North America, the department has strengthened the seasonal measures to manage risk of BMSB from arriving in Australia for the 2019–20 BMSB risk season.

The department has used a range of scientific, intelligence and evidence based information when setting the measures including data collected from the 2018-19 BMSB season onshore verification activities. The department has also worked closely with the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries on the 2019-20 measures to ensure both Australia and New Zealand’s BMSB seasonal measures are consistent across the two counties where possible. For the 2019-20 BMSB risk season, measures will apply to:

 certain goods manufactured in, or shipped from target risk countries, and/or  vessels that berth at, load or tranship from target risk countries from 1 September 2019 and that arrive in Australian territory by 31 May 2020 (inclusive). As with previous BMSB risk seasons, you must comply with these measures.

Throughout the season we will continue to review these measures based on detections of BMSB and the risk pathways and make any necessary adjustments.
