Fox bait community distribution

| Posted in
The Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board’s annual fox bait distribution days are coming up. Landholders encouraged to collect baits and talk to their local landscape officer about control strategies. In late summer and early autumn we start to see young foxes leave their dens and disperse to find a new territory, making this an ideal time to bait for these pest animals.

The 1080 meat baits are prepared by landscape board staff with eligible landholders able to purchase them for fox control for $1.50 per bait as per the statewide Landscape SA Pest Control Pricing Policy. At distribution days, a 20% discount applies, as well as when groups of three or more adjoining landholders purchase baits as part of a coordinated baiting program at other times throughout the year.

Land managers are reminded to bring along a bucket with a sealable lid when collecting baits or they are available to purchase for $12. The baits are frozen meat which is best kept frozen until use. Land managers will also be required to provide the section numbers for the properties they intend to bait.

A 20% discount on baits applies at these distribution days. Bring a bucket (or buy one for $12) along with your section number.
