To reduce the risk of spreading Queensland fruit fly, you must not take fresh fruit (including tomatoes, capsicums and chillies) into a fruit growing area. Fruit infested with fruit fly may appear to be intact on the outside.
If you have mistakenly taken fruit into a fruit growing area, it should be placed in a sealed plastic bag and left in the sun for a minimum of three days, and then placed in the rubbish bin. Maggots can also be killed by stewing or freezing the fruit.
