RAB010: Bait delivery of Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV)

Rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) is used to minimise the impact of the introduced European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) on agricultural production and the environment. Other rabbit control methods include poisoning, warren destruction, surface harbour removal, shooting, trapping, exclusion fencing and biological control with myxomatosis. RHDV causes rabbit haemorrhagic disease  (RHD), an acute, highly contagious disease […]

CAM003: Mustering of feral camels

The population of feral camels (Camelus dromedarius) in Australia is currently estimated to be around one million with numbers increasing at around 8% per year. At high densities camels can have serious impacts on vegetation and have the potential to cause significant production losses through competition with cattle. They can also damage fences and  watering […]

DON002: Aerial shooting of feral donkeys

Feral donkeys (Equus asinus) can damage native vegetation, contribute to soil erosion and compete with stock for pasture and water. Control methods include ground shooting and shooting from helicopters, sometimes aided by the use of a Judas animal, and also exclusion fencing. Aerial shooting of feral donkeys from a helicopter is used for large scale […]

Measurement and sampling of pest animals used in research

Research involving pest animals may require the taking of measurements of and samples from individual animals. Examples include body weight and size measurements, blood, hair and faecal samples. Measurement and sampling techniques must be appropriate for the species and minimise distress and the risk of injury to the animal. Inappropriate techniques may lead to major […]

Restraint and handling of pest animals used in research

Research involving pest animals may require the live capture, restraint and handling of individual animals. Wild animals may try to avoid capture, handling and restraint during which they are capable of inflicting damage to themselves and their potential captors. When physical contact is necessary, the safety of animals and operators should be the primary consideration. […]

Marking of pest animals used in research

Research involving pest animals may require the reliable identification of individual animals. Where possible, researchers should make use of natural identifying marks. However, the majority of species require the application of some form of identifying mark or tag. A variety of techniques is available and includes temporary, semi-permanent and permanent markers. The type of marker […]

Taming HSNO for Pest Managers

The legislation for vertebrate pesticides in New Zealand has recently been overhauled. New controls on these substances now run to hundreds of pages of legalese. To enable Department of Conservation staff to cope with this change we have analysed and interpreted controls into meaningful actions to ensure compliance. Existing Standard Operating Procedures were modified and […]
