Omori Kuratau Pest Management Update

 Omori/Kuratau Pest Management Group Report for March, 2019 Although variable, we average about 50-60 rats in March and were about average this year Rats = 54. (57 last year) About half of the rats were taken out in donated traps and every trapline caught rats – a first for a while. Mice = 6. (6 last year) Stoats/Ferrets = 8. (1 stoat and 7 ferrets – the most ferrets we have ever taken out – all 7 of them caught on lines close to the Kuratau River Picture shows relative sizes of the 3 mustelids we target. Feral Cats = 8. (25 last year). This may seem small compared with last year. However the total number of cats taken out in the first 3 months of the year is very similar to last year – 29 last year and 27 this year. Perhaps we got our cats early this year – let's hope so. Possums = 1. ( 0 last year) . Hedgehogs = 8. (13 last year). Kind regards to you all and we hope to see you all at Easter.
