Pest Animal Poisoning Programs
Animal poisoning programs are essential to effectively and efficiently manage Australia’s feral, and invasive animal species.
Animal Pest Management Services works with a number of animal poisons that can be used to effectively control feral animals that are predators to native Australian animals, or have a negative impact on the country’s environment and resources.
Some of the programs we offer that are proven to achieve results use 1080, strychnine, pindone, alphachloralose, PAPP and phosphine, plus a host of other safe and effective poisons. These animal poisoning products are mostly used to control wild dogs/dingoes, feral pigs, rabbits, foxes and some pest birds.
After working with these animal control agents and poisons in the pest animal control industry for nearly 40 years, Mike Butcher and his team also has extensive experience dealing with Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease (RHD), as well as a range of other biological pest control methods.
A History of Success
Our poisoning programs have been highly successful across Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria. Our protection of marine turtle nests at Gnaraloo Station in Western Australia achieved 100% success, and our work dealing with predator foxes has seen a phenomenal result of zero fox related issues on turtle nests over eight seasons on 92,000 hectares.
Some of our other accomplishments include saving an estimated 45,600 turtle eggs over a four-year period, as well as a rabbit-poisoning program that was ran along the coast of Western Australia and in Perth that resulted in the control of 92% of wild rabbits.
Our carefully-planned animal poison programs are conducted with the utmost care, achieving outstanding results, with no adverse incidents.
Mike Butcher was using Pindone on rabbits since its first use in Australia in 1982 and he has trained his staff on the safe use of this anticoagulant based on his extensive experiences to achieve effective control of rabbits across many different situations.
With experience on 1080 baiting of feral pigs dating back to the first trials conducted in WA during the mid 1980’s as well as the use of this poison on wild dogs and foxes for even longer, Mike’s field experience and knowledge allows APMS to provide results to our clients that are second to none.
