Heightened surveillance of timber packing material from China
The Department of Agriculture has intercepted Asian longhorn beetle, the brown mulberry longhorn beetle and the Japanese sawyer beetle in timber pallets imported from China.
These beetles are considered significant pests of living trees.
The infested pallets were stamped with the treatment identification code ISPM15 HT and arrived into Australia with supporting documentation which confirmed treatment.
