Information on containment control plants, those that are abundant in suitable habitats in the region with the long term goal to prevent these plants spreading to new areas or neighbouring properties.
A containment control plant is one that is abundant in suitable habitats in the region and the long term goal is to prevent these plants spreading to new areas or neighbouring properties. Because they are widespread the cost of eradication is considered too great to justify more rigorous methods of control.
The Strategy requires land occupiers to keep their property, boundary free of the plant pest if it is not present within a defined distance of their property.
Containment Control plant pests are banned from sale, propagation and distribution under the Biosecurity Act 1993.
We rely on Hawke's Bay residents to be our eyes and ears looking out and reporting unusual organisms so we can respond immediately. Whether you are a landowner, lifestyle property owner or urban resident, there are plant pests that will require dealing with at some time or another.
If you would like help with a pest control problem, or wish to report anything you think our Pest Control team should know about you can do so on our Fix It page.
