Understand the outbreak restrictions

An outbreak is named for the location where the outbreak detection was made. A red outbreak area extends to a 1.5km diameter around the detection point. A yellow suspension area extends to a 7.5 km (for Mediterranean fruit fly) or 15 km (for Queensland fruit fly) diameter from the detection point. This means a number of suburbs or localities will be in an affected area.

Restrictions are currently in place to limit the movement of some fruit and vegetables within these areas.

This may affect where you live, work or go to school.

Location of outbreaks and how long restrictions are in place

In the summer, from December to February, adult flies can emerge from the pupae in as little as seven days. In the cooler months, they take longer to emerge and they also live longer. Because fruit fly have been detected at this time of year when it's getting cooler, we have to increase the restriction period to cover the longer life cycle.
