Advice to minimise the risk of poisoning to your animals
- Conﬁne, muzzle and / or restrain your domestic animals, particularly dogs and cats, to prevent them from accessing 1080 and/or PAPP pest animal poison baits or carcasses.
- Domestic animals, particularly dogs and cats, are susceptible to primary poisoning from ingesting 1080 or PAPP pest animal bait products and secondary poisoning from ingesting contaminated carcasses. It is unusual for domestic animals to scavenge on fox carcasses.
- Closely monitor the health and behaviour of your domestic pets. If you notice any unusual or uncharacteristic behaviour contact your local veterinarian immediately.
- There is a delay in the poison action of 1080 and PAPP and animals that have ingested 1080 and/or PAPP pest animal bait products may die on your property.
- Collect and destroy any poisoned carcasses you ﬁnd by burning (in accordance with local regulations) or burying to a depth of at least 50 cm for rabbits and at least 1 metre for foxes, wild dogs and feral pigs.
- Always dispose of carcasses away from natural features such as waterways.
Danger to humans
Compound 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) is a restricted schedule 7 poison and there is no known antidote. If you are handling poison bait and/or carcasses always use protective rubber gloves and wash hands and gloves thoroughly after contact.
Compound PAPP (4-aminopropiophenone) is a restricted schedule 7 poison and if immediate treatment is obtained an antidote may be available.
If you are handling poison bait and/or carcasses always use protective rubber gloves and wash hands and gloves thoroughly after contact.
When used in accordance with the product label and Directions for the Use of 1080 and PAPP Pest Animal Bait Products in Victoria, there is little risk of humans being poisoned by 1080 or PAPP pest animal bait products.
Although the 1080 and PAPP used in 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait products is substantially diluted, 1080 and PAPP pest animal baits and poisoned carcasses must be treated with care.
If poisoning occurs immediately contact a doctor or the Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26.
Further information on the use and handling of 1080 and PAPP is available from 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait manufacturers.
