Quoting Radio New Zealand – 19 June 2019
“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.”
