The report indicates that FAW infestations have been detected throughout Limpopo Province’s five districts, parts of Mpumalanga as well as the Eastern Cape.

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) has requested that farmers and agricultural organisations to sharpen their monitoring and reporting efforts on the occurrence of this pest throughout the country.

Daily and weekly reports have to be submitted to DAFF for all new areas where FAW is found.
