Pest Animal Impacts and Controls
Enviro Research has had long term experience
in pest mammal control and eradication processes, both nationally
Our experience includes designing pest control
regimes, implementing control or eradication measures, and
Recent projects include designing a bait station
network to control possums and other pest fauna species, to
protect endangered plants such as Pittosporum turnerii
and Dactylanthus taylorii, in Erua Forest Ecological
We have also been involved in fauna species
protection through trapping of mustelids, possums, and feral
We have the expertise to design methods and
systems, evaluate pest species abundance and impact, and to
conduct on-going monitoring and habitat recovery rates.
We have also monitored deer abundance through pellet transect counts to determine whether recreational hunting is sufficiently controlling herd sizes. This has been important for land managers to determine the need for greater deer control measures, and the assessment of associated impacts.
