 Advisory pests are established within the region and are known to negatively impact on environmental, production and/or public values.

These pests are not the subject of identified programmes and rules in the Regional Pest Management Programme but council does provide control advice.

Pest curve BOPRC

The above pest infestation curve is used to help determine which control programme is most appropriate. The further to the left a pest is on the curve, the easier it is to control.

Once a pest becomes established and move to the right, the cost of control increases significantly and likelihood of eradication decreases.
