DO NOT SPRAY CACTUS BUG
Volunteers are doing a fantastic job spraying Hudson Pear however there is a different cacti that we do not want sprayed. At the end of the airport runway just west of 3 Mile Road is a patch of cylindropuntia kleiniae which is being eaten by a cochineal bug.

Cylindropuntia kleiniae is a cactus like Hudson Pear but it is taller and spindly. If anyone sees white fluffy residue on the cactus, as is in the photograph, please do not spray the plant as this will kill the bug.

The paperwork has been filed for consent to release the cochineal bugs that will hopefully eat Hudson Pear and we are waiting for government approval. This can take some time.

ACCESS MANAGEMENT PLANS
The landholders for ‘Allawah’, Sorrento’ and ‘Muttabun’ have filed their written submissions with the Land & Environment Court in response to the miners’ representative’s submissions. We are now awaiting the Land & Environment Court’s determination of Access Management Plans for these three properties.
