Area-Wide Management (AWM) is a proven management approach for mobile pests around the world, employing a united strategy to target all pest habitats within a well-defined area or region to reduce the total pest population. These guidelines will help you understand AWM, how to get started implementing it for Queensland fruit fly, and the opportunities to implement Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) once AWM has been successfully implemented.

To work properly, Area Wide Management requires input from the whole community – so we’ve created three different sets of steps in implementing AWM, depending on whether you’re a coordinator, a commercial grower or a backyard gardener. Simply choose who you are from the options on this website.
