Seeking Consent to Bait in Tuateawa August 2020

1 Comment

Dear Residents, Landowners and Holiday-Home owners! As we have done for over 20 years now, we are planning to do our annual baiting in August. We chose to bait at this time of the year to protect fledging birds, a successful strategy which is shown by our abundant birdlife.

This year the subdivision will be treated with Diphacinone, this is a rat specific poison. The bait will be put into the bait stations that are located around our subdivision.

The bait stations in our surrounding forest area will be filled with a new toxin called Double Tap, which is a combination of Cholicalcipherol and Diphacinone, a bait that targets both possums and rats.

There will be signs installed, informing the public which area is being treated and what kind of bait is being used.

Please do not leave children or pets unattended!

All baits will be removed by the end of November.

Thank you for your cooperation and help in keeping Tuateawa beautiful!!!

Kind regards,

Nicola Baumgaertner
