Pest animal management
How we support landholders’ pest management
Our Biosecurity Officers are on the ground to provide advice to help landholders control pest species on their land. This includes:
- providing advice on how to deal with declared pest species
- coordinating management plans to control pests
- inspecting properties for declared pests and helping you to develop a control plan
- providing advice on controlling pest animals – either through group baiting programs (organised with your neighbours) or individual control methods
We also sell baits to ratepayers and can advise you on purchasing baits (such as meat, carrots and grain) depending on your needs.
Group pest control programs
The most effective method of controlling pest animals across NSW landscapes is with coordinated group control programs.
Each year we coordinate hundreds of group programs using a variety of control methods. We encourage all landholders to participate for the largest impact on pest populations.
To find out more about group control programs in your area, contact Local Land Services on 1300 795 299 or look up your local office.
