Council encourages all landowners to take advantage of this opportunity to bait these invasive pests.  Coordinated baiting with 1080 is the most economical way of achieving effective control of these pests across a large area. Non-participation by landholders in baiting programs is the biggest barrier to achieving effective control.

The baiting service for landholders does not incur a cost and a great deal of effort is focused on achieving high participation rates amongst landholders.

Please note the following requirements when using the 1080 baiting program:

 

  • Landholders must give 72 hours’ notice to all neighbouring land and any dwellings within 500 meters from where baits are to be laid.
  • Landholders are responsible for supplying their own meat which must be approximately 250 grams for dog bait.
  • Landholders are responsible for supplying their own meat which must be approximately 500 grams for pig baits and must be arranged prior to the baiting program with Councils Pest Management Officers.
  • Landholders can have someone else pick up their baits for them but must supply an “Authority to sign” form filled out on the day. If they don’t have one they can contact council on 1300 697 372.
