Seeking Consent to Bait in Tuateawa starting 28th August 2021

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 choose to bait at this time of the year to protect fledging birds. 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 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 we are using.

Please do not leave children or pets unattended!

All baits will be removed by the end of October. For more information visit our website

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

Kind regards, Nicola Baumgaertner (Pest Control Coordinator, Habitat Tuateawa Inc.)
