Report a pest

If you are concerned about a pest plant (weed), pest animal or plant disease that you have seen, and it is not featured in the Regional Pest Management Strategy (RPMS), please let us know.

You can email the biosecurity team or call us on 09 301 0101.

Please provide as much detail as possible, such as:

  • when you saw the weed or animal
  • where you saw the weed or animal
  • any pictures you may have taken of it.

If you're not sure who to contact, try Auckland Council biosecurity in the first instance, and we can advise the best course of action.

For some pests, you may also need to notify the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), which is the agency responsible for managing exotic pests lik the Queensland Fruit Fly. Their hotline is 0800 80 99 66.
