School’s fruit fly campaign

By Southern Riverina News

Finley Public School has incorporated the ‘No Flies On Us’ fruit fly campaign into its My Kitchen Garden program.

Four members of the Finley Lions Club visited the school to show the students how to make a fly trap and explain the life cycle of a fly.

Lions Clubs across the area have joined with several shires including Berrigan and Moira Shire Councils to help educate the community and in turn eventually eradicate the Queensland Fruit Fly.

The spread of the pest poses a serious threat to the region’s horticulture industry by limiting the range of fruit crops someone can grow in their garden.
