Increasing the efficiency of control of canid pests in Australia

Foxes and wild dogs are estimated to cause losses of more than A$100M p.a. to agricultural industries in Australia (McLeod 2004), and their predatory activities are known to impact significantly on endemic species of mammals and birds. Continuing control of these pests is imperative, and in Australia this is most commonly achieved by use of poison baits and traps. We are working on a number of options to increase the efficiency of monitoring and suppression of these pests.
