The 1080 meat baits are prepared by landscape board staff with eligible landholders able to purchase them for fox control for $1.50 per bait as per the statewide Landscape SA Pest Control Pricing Policy. At distribution days, a 20% discount applies.

Land managers are reminded to bring along a bucket with a sealable lid when collecting baits or they are available to purchase for $12. The baits are frozen semi dried meat which is best kept frozen until use. Land managers will also be required to provide the section numbers for the properties they intend to bait.

If a landholder is intending to send a third party to collect their baits, please contact us in advance so that the correct paperwork can be completed and we are able to facilitate the distribution.
