Methyl Bromide use in Victoria

Methyl bromide is an odourless, colourless gas used as a fumigant for the control of a wide variety of pests including insects, spiders, mites, snails and rodents. The only use of methyl bromide in Australia is for soil treatment for strawberry runner production and the fumigation of items to be imported or exported to prevent the transportation of harmful organisms. For more information on the regulatory controls relating to the use of methyl bromide in Victoria, please read the attached Department of Health fact sheet.
