Pest Management Update – March 2021

Omori/Kuratau Pest Management Group Report. March 2021 Tallies for March 2021 Greetings Ratepayers & Supporters March was an interesting month – again the top rat line was the Omori Boat-ramp to Omori Stream and along the front of the lake from the Kuratau Boat-ramp coming home in second place. Good news too about possums with a drop to 5 possums for the month – 2 of which were taken out in Timms traps from a private Manunui Street property. Tallies as follows: Rats = 42. (last year 73) This is the smallest March total since 2017. This brings our total to 3,600 rats taken out. Still 400 to go to get to the magic 4000 total! As a matter of interest the rat totals for March from 2017 through to March 2020 were 50, 57, 54 and 73, so a very large drop in rat numbers from last year. 21 of the 42 rats were taken out from the 3 donated traplines and 21 from the remaining 10 traplines. Mice = 14 (last year 42) Cats = 3 (last year 3) Ferrets/Stoats = 8 (11 last year) Possums = 5. (3 last year which was a month before the major monthly increases started and hopefully it is now dropping off) Hedgehogs = 7 (14 last year) Rabbits = 3 (0 last year) Many thanks to you all for reporting sightings of predators – especially mustelids (weasels, stoats, ferrets) which allows us to immediately place a trap to where they were sighted.
