The latest specimen in the state’s fruit fly incursion has been found at Mowbray.
A male Queensland fruit fly was found in a specially set trap in the Northern Launceston suburb.
The discovery was reported by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment on Thursday.
It is the second discovery at the suburb – the first was about one month ago.
However, Biosecurity Tasmania says the discoveries do not equal an outbreak, and a control zone will not be established.
The body has inspected about 120 properties in the area, and says there is no evidence of an established fruit fly population.
The area will continued to be monitored for nine weeks.
Fruit fly was first discovered in Tasmania in late January, and control zones remain in place in the North-West, Flinders Island, and around George Town.
Biosecurity Tasmania reminds individuals to obey control areas, and report any suspect produce by calling 6165 3774.
