Nimble News 17 January 2024


Not skills or workforce related but very important to WA!!

There have been confirmed detections of the exotic beetle Polyphagous Shot-hole Borer (PSHB) in the Perth metropolitan area. This tiny beetle is already impacting Kings Park with 20 trees being chopped down to stop its spread.  A quarantine area is in place for 25 local government areas.


DPIRD are asking people living or working in the quarantine area to familarise themselves with the restrictions on movement of wood and plant material. We can also do our bit by learning what to look for, and monitoring susceptible species in our gardens and local streets.
