The Southern Downs Regional Council is running its August wild dog, fox and feral pig baiting program and free baits are still available at selected locations today and tomorrow.
The council encourages all landowners to take advantage of this opportunity to bait these invasive pests. Co-ordinated 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 among landholders.
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 metres from where baits are to be laid.
* Landholders are responsible for supplying their own meat which must be about 250 grams for dog bait.
Landholders are responsible for supplying their own meat which must be about 500 grams for pig baits and must be arranged prior to the baiting program with the council’s 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 the council on 1300 697 372.
For more information, contact the council pest management officers on 1300 MYSDRC (1300 697 372).
