Report a pest plant, pest animal or plant disease
Pest plants, pest animals or plant diseases
We implement pest management programmes for specific types of pests. We need your help to report
pests that are targeted for eradication or progressive containment by council across the region or on Aotea Great Barrier.
See the list of pests we control in the
Regional Pest Management Plan (RPMP).
Report your pest problem online
If you see a pest plant, pest animal or plant disease, you can
report it online. Tell us the details, upload a picture and we will respond to your enquiry within five working days.
To report a nuisance caused by a domesticated animal, call us on 09 301 0101.
When to contact Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI)
For some pests, you may also need to notify the
Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) on 0800 80 99 66. You can also visit the
MPI website to see if the pest is known to be in New Zealand.
MPI is responsible for managing exotic pests when they enter our country.
From time to time, MPI will identify threats from new pest species. When there is a threat, they will lead a national response to prevent the new pest from establishing.
If you think you’ve seen a marine pest outside its known location, note the location and take a photo or sample if you can.
