Recent feedback from numerous merchant agronomists in WA has prompted us to issue this update as a first stage mouse activity precaution for WA rural merchants.>
We are currently receiving reports of significant numbers of mice in several cropping regions of WA and some bait is being applied already. It is NOT what we could call a plague situation but is sufficiently widespread to raise our concerns one notch for preparedness.
This article describes the potential for crop damage, and the actions required to minimise risk to crops. See: http://www.animalcontrol.com.au/news/2015/20150510-1.htm
Despite being in the APVMA review processes for several years the PAPP approval process moves forward slowly.
For more information about progress please see the News tab above.
