A collection of best practice tools and guidelines for pest management and control.
The National Pest Plant Accord (NPPA) is an agreement with industry to prevent the sale and/or distribution of pest plants where either formal or casual horticulture trade is the most significant way of spreading the plant in New Zealand.
The Possum Control Cost Calculator is an online publicly-accessible spreadsheet, containing mathematical formulae that can estimate the monetary costs of possum population control operations. It has been designed as a working tool to assist wildlife pest managers in planning operations, however it is also used by researchers, ecoepidemiological modellers, and as a teaching aid. It is free for use.
The RTCI template calculates the Residual Trap Catch Index (RTCI) and confidence intervals for your possum monitoring data. It is for those who hold a possum population monitoring Designer's Certificate and have been instructed in the use of the template during the designer training course.
Find DOC's standard operating procedures (SOPs) and other technical documents that are used when planning animal pest operations.
This document provides detailed information about eradication design, planning and methods that should be applied to operational planning for eradicating mice using aerial broadcast of poison baits.
If you’re out and about setting and baiting traps, what’s the best way to measure the results?
Good news: it doesn’t have to involve fiddling around with hand-drawn maps or manually entering numbers into spreadsheets.
This report identifies and reviews Australasian and international research on public attitudes towards current and proposed forms of control for invasive animals. The review is primarily intended as an information resource for those involved in researching and managing the impacts of animal pests in Australia and New Zealand.
This document provides detailed information about eradication design, planning and methods that should be applied to operational planning for eradicating rats using aerial broadcast of poison baits.
Introduced predators don’t belong here – but it is important to remove them in a humane way that avoids or minimises pain, suffering and distress – both to target and non-target animals.
All the traps we recommend have passed the National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (NAWAC) guidelines which means they kill humanely and are easy to use and maintain.
Get the tools and guidance you need for your community PF2050 project. Includes beginner tips, trap and bait profiles, how-tos and funding resources. This toolkit will be most useful for community groups working in green spaces, rather than urban areas or backyards.
