Possums Okay in a Toyota Ad But Not in a Wetland
During project site visits, RiverCare’s operations manager noticed increasing possum damage to several established native trees on two projects that are in the pre-planting stage of development. He’s seen this before when restoration activity changes habitat and limits feeding options—possums quickly move to feeding on new vegetation types. If their numbers are high, it doesn’t take long before grazing damage and broken branches can be seen within the canopy of their new favourite tree.
To control pest animals on projects, RiverCare has used Timms Traps and the Doc 200 or 250. All three are kill traps which require resetting once triggered by a predator.
