According to the Department of Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), moths collected in traps in the Western Cape towards the middle and end of May 2018 were positively identified as FAW.
- Near lucern fields at Riviersonderend in the Western Cape.
- In wheat fields on two farms at Swellendam
Trapping should be extended to small grain farms at Napier and Caledon, Malmesbury, Mooreesburg, Piketberg, Clanwilliam, Vredendal – to determine how far the moth has spread through the province. Earlier in May reports were made that FAW was also detected near George in the Western Cape.
