Seasonal pest animal control programs are well underway
01 Jun 2022
The North West Local Land Services has undertaken a number of coordinated cross tenure aerial control programs throughout Autumn 2022.
The North West Local Land Services invasive species team completed their annual autumn aerial wild dog baiting program in May.
The program involves two well established wild dog control associations, capturing 62 properties across public and private tenure in the Tamworth and Liverpool Plains region.
A total of 11,804 baits were dropped along 295 kilometres of known wild dog paths.
Ideal weather conditions saw a great start to the program on Friday 20 May 2022. However, heavy mountain fog and low cloud delayed the program slightly with the remainder being completed on Monday 23 May. The helicopter then continued aerial wild dog baiting into the North Tablelands region for an extensive two-week program.
