Shoalhaven City Council is conducting a fox control program using 1080 poison baits during the period from August to Mid December 2017. All use of the baits complies with the 1080 Pesticide Control Order. Individual sites are signposted with the Warning 1080 Poison signs. At the end the baiting period, all baits will be removed from the site and destroyed.

The baiting program has been designed to minimise the risk to non-target species (both domestic and native) and minimise disruption to residents who own dogs. As a result of the program, significant benefits accrue to farmers, landowners with small livestock and the significant populations of Australian mammals, lizards, turtles and birds in this area.
Council is seeking your cooperation to protect you and your neighbour’s domestic pets during this baiting period. You need to be aware that dogs and cats are susceptible to 1080 poison. During this period, you should take additional care of your dogs or dogs visiting your property, and ensure that they are under effective control at all times.
For further information contact the Local Land Services on 4464 6000 or Leanne Richards on 4429 3630. Please quote Council’s reference 3690E (D17/221649).
