Have you seen this beetle?

The polyphagous shot-hole borer (PSHB) is an invasive pest that damages trees by tunnelling into trunks and spreading the destructive Fusarium fungus - not a friendly neighbour!

We are now on PSHB alert, having been included in the State Government’s expanded quarantine area in an attempt to contain the pest.

Please be on the lookout for clusters of tiny holes (about the size of a ballpoint pen tip) in trunks and branches, and don't remove any green waste from the quarantine area.

Keep an eye out for an information card in your letterbox or read more on the Department of Primary Industry & Regional Development's website below.
