Fruit fly joint project

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Dis­trict Lions Clubs have joined the Ber­ri­gan Shire and Moira Shire coun­cils to help de­tect and pre­vent the spread of Queens­land Fruit Fly in the lo­cal area.

As part of the ‘No Flies on Us’ cam­paign, Fin­ley Lions Club mem­bers re­cently spent time with St Joseph’s, Fin­ley stu­dents mak­ing fly traps from soft drink bot­tles.

The stu­dents also learned about the life cy­cle of the fruit fly and the var­i­ous baits to use to erad­i­cate them.

Each stu­dent re­ceived a la­bel to colour in and stick on their bot­tle, and an in­for­ma­tion pack to take home.

Fin­ley Lions will visit Fin­ley Pub­lic School to run the same pro­gram this year.
