Foxes poisoned with 1080 are seldom located. This can give the false impression that baiting is not effective.
- warn your neighbours before baiting and put up warning signs
- keep dogs and cats restrained while baits are out
- retrieve and dispose of all uneaten fox baits, and containers at the end of the control campaign
- wash your clothes and hands after handling baits.
Remember foxes and other animals, especially birds, can move baits, so follow the recommended procedures to minimise this risk.
