Vanuatu moves to combat Rhinoceros Beetle

0

Biosecurity officials are restricting the movement of organic material from Efate to prevent the spread of the Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle.

A taskforce has been set up to eradicate the invasive pest after it was found in the north of Efate, a main island.

To prevent its spread, manure, firewood, coconut husks and palm fronds can no longer be taken from the island.
