When fruit fly is found, the Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) establishes a red outbreak area and a yellow suspension area around the detection site. Several City of Unley suburbs have recently been declared as inside fruit fly outbreak areas.

Outbreak areas

Visit the State Government Fruit Fly website to find out if the suburb you are living or working is in the outbreak area, and what you need to do.

Once you have located what outbreak area you are in, ensure you understand the restrictions currently in place to limit the movement of some fruit and vegetables at risk from fruit fly.

Please continue to enjoy SA fruit and vegetables, but know the restrictions on moving them around.

Thank you for doing your part in protecting South Australia from fruit fly!
