Permanent toxic baiting is no longer the go-to treatment. A concise document has been prepared and is available on the PRCD website.
- Toxic baiting should only be for a max 35 days period.
- Permanent toxic baiting is strictly limited to sites with a high potential for reinvasion when other methods of control have proven insufficient.
- When permanent toxic baiting is required and whilst it continues to be justified, the risk assessment and baiting strategy should be reviewed every 35 days in the context of IPM.
- Sites implementing toxic baiting must be revisited every 4 weeks at a minimum during the treatment.
