Feral animal baiting programs

Sodium Fluroacetate (1080) is a target-specific pesticide and is registered for use in the control of wild dogs, feral pigs, foxes, cats and rabbits. It is widely used in Australia to protect agricultural production and native flora and fauna from the impacts of pest animals and is the most efficient, humane and species-specific pesticide currently available.

1080 can only be handled by licensed operators and cannot be used in urban areas. Coordinated baiting programs are hosted annually within the Central Highlands local government area and are generally conducted in autumn and again in spring.
