B3 joins the fight against fruit flies

A Fruit Fly Exclusion Zone exists in the prime fruit growing areas of NSW, Victoria and South Australia where it is forbidden to bring fresh fruit. This is all in an attempt to protect the fruit growers from the fruit fly (read here to read why the fruit fly is so bad).
As one enters the zone there are lots of warnings of $200 on the spot fines if fruit is found in your vehicle. In 12 months inspectors seized over 80 tonnes of fruit!
B3 is doing her bit and showing where she threw away the tomatoes and watermelon we didn't get to eat before entering the zone.
