SDRC encourages all landowners to take advantage of the opportunity to bait invasive pests.  Coordinated 1080 baiting is the most economical way of achieving effective control of 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 owners of all neighbouring land.

·         Landholders are responsible for supplying their own meat which must be approximately 250 grams for dog baits and approximately 500 grams for pig baits.

·         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.
