Our Professional trapping services use the most up-to-date and humane methods of capture for wild animal population reduction programs. Animal trapping services are generally used in Australia for feral cats, foxes, wild dogs/dingoes, feral goats, feral pigs, birds, native pest animals and escaped animals.
Our Professional trapping services use the most up-to-date and humane methods of capture for wild animal population reduction programs. Animal trapping services are generally used with either cage traps or foot-hold traps, depending on the species and location. When trapping native fauna, we also use other trap types such as pit fall traps.
FOX AND WILD DOG TRAPPING EXPERTS
At Animal Pest Management Services, we pride ourselves on a success rate for trapping foxes that is the highest in the industry, with average annual capture rates for foxes of 1 per 8 trap nights in high risk locations and 1:6 generally.
Our team also includes specialist wild dog trappers (doggers) that are able to conduct control and eradication programs on wild dogs on farms, pastoral stations and mine sites across the whole of Australia. Recently our monthly tally on wild dogs was 117!
With 100% protection of marine turtle nests at Pretty Pool Beach, Paradise Beach and Downes Island around Port Hedland in Western Australia, our trapping programs have proven highly effective. Where once foxes were predating on an average of 88% of turtle nests, we have achieved zero fox predation for 4 consecutive seasons.
Fox trapping is often much more difficult than wild dog trapping, especially in small reserves within and near urban and peri-urban areas. Foxes have a much keener sense of smell than dogs and this can lead to failures in fox trapping with only young foxes being trapped. The higher risks in these areas also requires increased safety measures.
Our staff have extensive training in wild dog as well as fox, feral cat and feral pig trapping. The training allows our staff to provide specialised, professional services on these animals as we are not just doggers, but are highly experienced in trapping other species as well.
