It’s the stuff the professionals use!
Day and night, vertebrate pests like possums, rabbits and rodents insidiously work away at spoiling property. They carry disease to livestock, ruin crops and threaten the health of humans and native wildlife.
New Zealanders spend nearly $200 million every year on vertebrate pest control, both directly through their own activities or indirectly via operations managed under regional and central government jurisdiction. High though this level of investment seems, it is miniscule however when compared with the values that are at risk from pest damage and disease.
New Zealand professional pest control operators are also highly regarded overseas for their expertise. Many successful rodent eradication operations have been carried out on scores of offshore islands by New Zealanders, using mainly New Zealand-made PESTOFF® rodent baits and blocks.
Rodents spoil food, spread disease and cause damage by fouling and gnawing. Although rodents become more visible and annoying in autumn when their numbers are high and they are looking for shelter to escape the oncoming cold, sensible rodent control involves year-round preventative action to keep populations in check.
