Christie Centre's move to manage fruit fly

The Christie Centre's removing all fruit trees from its Mildura properties.

The disability support service says it's had several fruit fall from the trees creating slipping risks but also increasing the risk of the Queensland Fruit Fly to flourish.

It had been using Qfly traps but found it couldn't keep up with the maintenance while the centre's planning to bring in native species.
