European House Borer Forum - 9th July

Just a reminder - there will be a Forum about the effects of the European House Borer in Ellenbrook on 9th July.

Venue: Ellenbrook Community Resource Centre; above the library in Main Street
Time: 7 pm
Date: Thursday 9th July

The European House Borer is a small beetle. Its larvae (caterpillars) eat untreated pine wood, and have been found in structural timber in some houses in Ellenbrook, as well as nearby pine plantations. It was accidentally brought into WA in untreated wood, and now it has become a pest in several Perth suburbs.

The City of Swan and the Department of Agriculture and Food are presenting this Forum so Ellenbrook residents can find out what is being done about this exotic pest, and how they can help.
