Fox Control Workshop
The Peel Harvey Biosecurity Group are hosting a fox control workshop in Oakford in June. This is in response to community demand for support and education into the control options available to them when controlling feral foxes.

The workshop is aimed at all landholder sizes with information on a range of control options. The workshop will also showcase trapping, 1080 products and include information on accreditation and training requirements.

Eddie Juras is an experienced feral animal trapper and will be demonstrating the use of soft jaw traps. Eddie uses a system of three soft jaw traps in a triangular fashion with free feeding in the center to great effect. This method represents a trapping option for those on smaller landholdings that may have tried cage traps previously. 

An officer from the Department of Primary Industries and Regional development will be showcasing the different 1080 products landholders can use in their efforts to control feral foxes.

With funding through the pest rate the PHBG can offer permit subsidies for landholders in our operational area.

Landholders traditionally exempt from 1080 permits can combine properties to reach the minimum land size for a permit as long as the combined properties met all requirements of the code of practice plus demonstrate how the increased risks are being managed and or planned for.

Please contact the Group on  if you are planning to apply or renew your 1080 accreditation.
