At this stage, while prospects for local containment are being assessed, growers or agronomists with suspect aphids should contact the Exotic Plant Pest Hotline on 1800 084 881. Treatment advice can be provided - if RWA is detected in a small area, it may be controlled with a suitable insecticide. Adopt best-practice farm hygiene procedures to retard the spread of the pest between fields and adjacent properties. Keep traffic out of affected areas and minimise movement in adjacent areas.
