Myrtle Rust Alert


Published on 19/05/2017


WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE SEEN IT
DO NOT TOUCH!  DO CLEAN,  DO REPORT

1. If you think you’ve spotted myrtle rust, don’t touch the infection – this will spread the disease. Rust spores are windblown like talcum powder and if you’re in the vicinity you’ll be the biggest spread risk.

2. Take a photo if you can, without touching any plant material.

3. Mark the site with a ribbon or similar, ensure you can describe your whereabouts. 4. Phone the MPI hotline 0800 80 99 66 immediately.
