Moth Plant Surveillance Operation

By Marlborough District Council



Moth plant has been declared a total control pest plant in the Marlborough region. It has a limited distribution and the long term goal is to eradicate this weed from the district. Sites are visited at least annually to ensure all infestations are controlled, reducing infestation size and eventually leading to their eradication.

The Marlborough District Council Biosecurity section would like to advise residents of Blenheim, Picton and Havelock that Council Biosecurity officers will be inspecting various residential sections during February and March.

If you have any queries please contact the Marlborough District Council Biosecurity section on Ph: 03 520 7400.
