Cattle tick surveillance program

Biosecurity Queensland officers will conduct surveillance for cattle ticks in the cattle tick free zone. The surveillance program will provide evidence of where cattle ticks are in the tick free zone and identify key risk areas. The surveillance program will target high-risk areas, such as properties surrounding tick outbreaks in the free zone. The surveillance program will monitor the effectiveness of cattle tick eradication programs on infested properties in the cattle tick free zone.

The cattle tick surveillance program will not provide property inspections for market access or proof of freedom. These services will be provided by accredited certifiers.

Details about the surveillance program are published by Biosecurity Queensland.
