Contingency Plans

As part of the Industry Biosecurity Plan, NGIA has developed contingency plans for key exotic pests which provide background information on the pest biology and available control measures to assist with preparedness in the event of an incursion. Each contingency plan provides guidelines to assist in developing a Response Plan to this exotic pest incursion.

Contingency plans form the basis for development of Response Plans in the event of detection of an exotic pest thus assisting with a more rapid emergency response for eradication, containment or management for a pest incursion.

The following contingency plans have been developed:

  • Aphid transmitted viruses -Potyviridae (include Plum pox potyvirus; Asparagus potyvirus)
  • Asian gypsy moth ( Lymantria dispar)
  • Banded greenhouse thrips ( Echinothrips americanus)
  • Brown Marmonated Stink Bug ( Halyomorpha halys)
  • Fireblight ( Erwinia amylovora)
  • Giant African Snail ( Achatina fulica)
  • Glassy winged sharp shooter ( Homalodisca coagulate)
  • Guava rust (causal agent Puccinia psidii)
  • Huanglongbing and its vectors
  • Longicorn beetles ( Anoplophora chinensis)
  • Pierces disease ( Xylella fastidiosa)
  • Poinsettia thrips ( Echinothrips americanus)
  • Serpentine leaf miner ( Liriomyza huidobrensis)
  • Sudden Oak Death ( Phytophthora ramorum)
  • Tarnished plant bug ( Lygus lineolaris)
  • Thrips transmitted viruses
  • White fly transmitted viruses
