Have you discovered a new weed or a new infestation of an existing weed? Seen a pest animal that you haven't noticed in Townsville before?
If so, please download the Pest Notification form (or contact us for a hard copy) and fill it out. Then return it to Environmental Health Services by fax, email, or in person, and we will follow up on your sighting.
This will help us keep track of new weeds and pests and get on top of them as quickly as we can.
