Safety alerts: 1080 pest management program

NPWS, in conjunction with the Culgoa Vertebrate Pest Animal Management and Ledknapper Wild Dog Action groups, is conducting a 1080 ground baiting operation at Culgoa National Park and Ledknapper Nature Reserve. The program will be carried out from Thursday 8 October to Monday 9 November 2020. Meat baits containing 1080 (sodium fluroacetate) poison will be used. The program is for the control of wild dog and foxes. Baiting locations are identified by signs.

Please remember that domestic pets are not permitted on NPWS estate. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting locations. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.

In accordance with the Pesticide Control (1080 Liquid Concentrate and Bait Products) Order 2019, 1080 fresh meat baits will be buried in a shallow hole and/or covered with organic material. Baits will be placed along boundaries and internal trails at a maximum of 10 baits per kilometre. Baits will not be laid within 5 metres from any property boundary.

Baits will be inspected within 5 days allowing staff to monitor, record and potentially identify the animal that has taken the bait.

For further information or concerns regarding the use of 1080 please don’t hesitate to call 0448 201 507 or the NPWS Bourke area office on 02 6830 0200.
