WHEN representatives of the Freight & Trade Alliance met with the Department of Agriculture recently, one of the key issues raised was the lack of availability of a list of approved offshore treatment providers for the upcoming brown marmorated stink bug season.

The department has since released preliminary details of approved treatment providers registered under the scheme that have demonstrated their capacity to conduct BMSB treatments for the 2019-20 BMSB season.

Details of providers can be found at the department’s website.


The department noted that all treatment providers approved for the 2018-19 BMSB season must re-apply to join the scheme for the 2019-20 season.

New applicants and previously approved treatment providers can apply to the join the scheme for the 2019-20 season by completing the application form on the Offshore BMSB treatment providers scheme webpage.
