Last Thursday a single male Queensland fruit fly was discovered in a trap in Devonport, a suburb of Auckland. Yesterday, just a week later, a second single male was found in a trap in Northcote, also a suburb of Auckland.
To prevent further spread, an area of Northcote has been placed under a Controlled Area Notice (CAN) effective today, restricting the movement of vegetables and fruits out of the area.
Despite this second find, an outbreak has not been declared.
