Control Plans & Reporting

Monitoring and Plan Formulation:

Each feral animal problem will be unique and as such have it's own set of variables to take into consideration before a control program is implemented.

Monitoring pathways on a daily basis will enable the flexibility of control of pest animals.

Consultation:

Ferals Out will consult on-site to assess feral animal activity and take into consideration pertinent factors such as: Terrain, target species behaviour & characteristics, proximity to built up areas, legislation, client needs, public issues and workplace health & safety guidelines.

This done, Ferals Out will formulate a control program to suit the specific requirements of each application.

Reporting:

Daily communications with the client throughout all operations keep the client informed of intended and actual control activities on a regular and consistent basis. This progressive result tally then forms the basis of a written report supplied to the client on completion of the control program.

Humane live capture of Feral Animals

Trapping:

  • Humane Mechanical Traps - Soft Catch Traps (rubber padded) - Bridger & Sterling Traps- Offset Jaws
  • Collarum Traps
  • Cage Trap
  • All the above are our preferred method of capture as they are more humane than steel leg hold traps. (Soft CatchTraps & Lanes Rubber Padded Traps Recommended by Dept. of Natural Resources & Mines.)

Shooting: (Only Specially Licensed Operators)

  • Hide Setup & Monitoring
  • Spotlighting - Vehicle or Foot Patrol
  • Luring - Scent attractants, Calling (voice, whistle and predator calls).
  • Euthanasia of captured feral animals (.25 cal air rifle/nil discharge of live ammunition may be appropriate in some instances)
  • Ammunition - Specialised projectiles for Specific applications. e.g. (Soft Rubber)

Chemical Baiting:

  • Chemical Baiting programs, if requested, can be co-ordinated to suit specialised applications after consultation with Dept. of Natural Resources & Mines.

Fencing:

  • Properly maintained fencing can restrict the movements of feral animals back into an area where their numbers have been controlled. Thus preventing re-infestation. (Reference: Xcluder Pest Proof Fencing).

Safety Measures

  • In the interest of public safety, specially worded signage can be posted for general view providing details of the control program, contact details and exclusion zones.
  • The use of these signs is decided upon at the initial consultation prior to commencement of any program.
  • Ferals Out will consult with the client prior to the commencement of any shooting procedures within any designated control program.
  • Before the commencement of any designated program, Ferals Out will consult with neighbouring property owners, alerting them to the activity and proposed duration of the program. Thus minimising the risk of accidental involvement in an area of trapping and or shooting.
  • Develop Good Neighbour Policy with Stakeholders.
  • Notification to Qld Police Communications.
  • Detailed Safety Plan.
  • Without specific written approval of the client, Ferals Out will not discharge live ammunition in the control area.
  • Ferals Out will liase with neighbouring property owners directly and through the Environmental Officer as required.
  • Ferals Out will implement combinations of trapping and lure methods as deemed necessary by Ferals Out after consultation with the Environmental Officer.
  • Target Species to be nominated e.g.., Wild Dogs, Foxes and Feral Cats.
  • Pest animals trapped are to be humanely euthanased.
  • Pest animals are to be removed from the vicinity of watercourses, roadways, built up areas and other environmentally sensitive areas.
  • Ferals Out will Select and record trap set locations using GPS.
  • Daily monitoring of trap sets and reporting types and numbers of animals caught.
  • Feral animals to be humanely euthanased upon capture.
  • Domestic animals caught to be delivered/collected to/by the Environmental Officer/Council Animal Control Officer in order to make contact with the relevant pet owners.
