The 2019 – 20 Brown Marmorated Stink Bug Season is coming to an end. We have received the below ruling from MPI regarding the final dates that overseas treatment is required:
The season dates are as follows: This section applies to all vehicles, machinery and parts (unless specified as being excluded), whether new or used, exported as break-bulk or in a container from Schedule 3 countries and exported on or after 1 September and arrive in New Zealand on or before 30 April of any year.
So if you ship your goods in April and they don’t arrive until May you do not have to treat.
Please keep this in mind when talking to us about shipping options over the next couple of months.
