Pest Control Area and Stages

Rodent control was set up in four stages, and the enclosure has recently been completed. Each stage started from a smaller set of stations then added to sequentially. Around 80 volunteers are involved and over 400 bait stations are now in constant use.

Methodology
Tracking stations were positioned to record rodent presence – before and during baiting.
Bait stations were then placed at least 50m apart and filled with Ditrac baits.The number of baits eaten were recorded and anticipated rat mortalities were calculated.
