There are a wide range of pest animals that we need to control in our region; in forests, reserves, farms and gardens. These pest animals kill or compete with native species, damage trees and crops, and spread disease.
We undertake direct control of some pests in targeted areas, while others are best managed by people on their own properties. Find out about pest control methods and operations, to protect the region’s biodiversity.
With so many pest animals out there, we all need to be involved in their control.
Use chew cards to find out if there are rats, mice, stoats, possums or hedgehogs. The cards are filled with a non-toxic substance that these pests like. You can identify the pest by the bite marks on the card. Buy chew cards from Predator Free New Zealand or Good Nature.
