Risk assessment for vertebrate pest control using 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait products

The bait user is responsible for assessing and managing the risks associated with the use of 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait products.

Completing a 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait risk assessment will help you to determine if 1080 or PAPP baiting is an appropriate control option and, if so, how many baits or capsules will be needed, what the risks are and how these risks will be managed.

A risk assessment provides the 1080 and PAPP user with a checklist of actions that need to be undertaken prior to, during and after baiting. It covers the identification of hazards (toxicity to target and non-target species) and the potential for non-target species to be exposed to bait.

A risk assessment will enable 1080 and PAPP bait users to identify and minimise the risks associated with the use of 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait products.

Completing a 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait risk assessment

A suggested process for completing a 1080 and PAPP risk assessment is provided below:

  1. Monitor the pest species that you are planning on managing, identifying where they are living, travelling, foraging and/or feeding and estimating their numbers on the property where baits may be laid. Conduct similar monitoring for non-target animals on the property where baits may be laid to determine non-target risks.
  2. Consider which of the pest animal management techniques available will be most effective for your situation.
  3. Determine if a 1080 or PAPP pest animal bait program is the most appropriate course of action. See Directions for the use of 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait products in Victoria for how these products are used.
  4. Prior to purchasing a 1080 or PAPP bait product, undertake a 1080 and PAPP risk assessment and speak with your neighbours about the pest animal problem and potential management solutions, including baiting.
  5. Discuss with them the possibility of undertaking coordinated baiting as this approach gives a greater level of pest animal control over a larger area of land.
  6. Identify where the most appropriate location(s) for bait placement are on your property.
