Omori Kuratau Pest Management Update

Omori/Kuratau Pest Management Group Report for December 2018 December again proved that it is very difficult to predict how many predators we will catch in any given month. Rats = 30. (11 last year) 15 of the rats were caught with donated traps. Mice = 1. (11 last year) 3 Stoats/Weasels/Ferrets. (5 last Year) Cats = 1. (5 last year) Possums = 0. ( 0 last year) . Hedgehogs = 1. (2 last year) The really good news is that the tea infusers that we now place our lures in have proved to be impervious to the rats and keep the lures (in spite of all the rain) in good condition for about 3-4 weeks. A huge saving on lures at last and great to beat the mice at their own game! January is always hard to predict as over the years it has varied from a high of 31 rats to 8 last year. Our ferral cat tally for 2018 stands at 75 – this is 29 less than the 104 we took out in 2017 – but still far too many for the sake of our birds If you sight any predators over the Christmas period, please let me know and we will place a trap where the sighting(s) occurred. Kind regards to you all and have a great holiday TallyTotals December Russell Shaw OKPMG Co-ordinator Contact Details: Ph: (07) 386 6667, Email: sspub@reap.org.nz 180 Omori Road
