Australia Stink Bug Fumigation Season 2022-2023

The Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment has announced the seasonal measures for the upcoming 2022-2023 Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) season, which is set to begin on September 1, 2022 and ends April 30, 2023.

Breakbulk cargo, Full Container Load (FCL) containers and Freight of All Kinds (FAK) shipments from high risk countries, including the USA, containing target high risk commodities are required to be fumigated.

For detailed information on the new regulations for the 2022-2023 season please visit:

With the aim of maintaining transit time integrity and minimizing financial impact, DGX will treat cargo sailing from the USA to Australia at an approved treatment facility in Los Angeles.

The LCL fumigation charges for this season will be USD 30.00 per w/m with a minimum of USD 150.00.

If you have any questions regarding the upcoming BMSB season please contact your local DGX office.

New Zealand: Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs (BMSB) season 2022/23

DGX will not be treating our consolidation containers from the USA to New Zealand.

A Manufacturer’s Declaration template for all applicable vehicles, machinery
and parts exported to New Zealand will be required, to determine if fumigation is required or if the cargo is exempt.

If your shipment requires fumigation it will be sent to an approved treatment facility in Los Angeles.
