- General news
The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development are calling on Perth residents to help stop the spread of this destructive pest.
Perth residents are asked to keep an eye out and report signs of polyphagous shot-hole borer (PSHB) infestation.
PSHB causes serious damage to many types of trees, with some species dying within two years of infestation. Early detection and the prompt removal or pruning of infested trees is key to containing the spread of PSHB and managing further impact on neighbouring trees.
There are a number of symptoms that indicate a tree may be infested, and more information and examples of these symptoms can be found by visiting the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) website here.
Signs of symptoms of PSHB infestation can be reported via the MyPestGuide® Reporter app, or by phoning DPIRD on 9368 3080 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
