Toxicity of cholecalciferol to rats in a multi-species bait
(Lincoln, Canterbury, 2010)
The effectiveness of Feracol®, a possum control paste bait containing 0.8% cholecalciferol, as a rodenticide has been assessed in cage and field trials. Caged rats were provided with toxic bait in choice and no-choice ...
Early field experience with microencapsulated zinc phosphide paste for possum ground control in New Zealand
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 2016)
In New Zealand we need to develop new control tools for the overabundant brushtail possum, which is an agricultural and environmental pest. In this study we evaluated the performance of a new microencapsulated zinc phosphide ...
Cost effectiveness and efficacy of ground-control techniques for pest-control in New Zealand
(University of California, 2010)
The brushtail possum, introduced to New Zealand in 1858, is a significant conservation pest and a major vector of bovine tuberculosis. Previous control-simulation studies have suggested that aerial delivery of bait containing ...
Effectiveness of cyanide pellets for control of dama wallabies (Macropus eugenii)
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 2011)
Dama wallabies (Macropus eugenii) are an introduced pest in New Zealand requiring control. Historically, sodium fluoroacetate (1080) has been used to control wallabies but there is increasing resistance to this method of ...
Toxicology and ecotoxicology of zinc phosphide as used for pest control in New Zealand
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 2013)
Zinc phosphide (Zn3P2) has been used overseas as a vertebrate pest control tool for several decades. It has been favoured in the USA and Australia for the field control of rodents and other animal pest species because of ...
Diphacinone and coumatetralyl persistence in deer and implications for wildlife management
(Julius Kühn-Institut, 2011-10-14)
Because of the concerns regarding wildlife contamination following the field use of anticoagulants the hepatic persistence of diphacinone and coumatetralyl has been compared in deer. Initial coumatetralyl concentrations ...
Progressing the possum pied piper project
(University of California, 2012)
Improving vertebrate pest control operations relies on increasing pest animal interactions with control devices (e.g., bait stations, bait bags, and/or traps). Interactions are encouraged using a variety of baits and lures ...
An updated review of the toxicology and ecotoxicology of sodium fluoroacetate (1080) in relation to its use as a pest control tool in New Zealand
(New Zealand Ecological Society., 2011)
Sodium fluoroacetate (1080) is a vertebrate pesticide, originally developed in the 1940s and principally used for the control of unwanted introduced animals in New Zealand and Australia. Fluoroacetate is also a toxic ...
A re-evaluation of potential rodenticides for aerial control of rodents
Rodent control is carried out extensively in New Zealand to protect the native fauna and flora. This review outlines the advantages and disadvantages of different rodenticides as alternatives to sodium fluoroacetate (1080), ...
Research on new toxins: striving for improvements in animal pest control
(Lincoln University, 2011-08)
Introduced animal pests are destroying New Zealand’s biodiversity.This presentation outlines current solutions, then looks at new toxins and delivery systems.
