For many years bait users have grappled with the notion that some foxes require a different bait to others. We have seldom seen bait rejection by foxes except for their propensity to leave chicken heads on the ground after discovering them and lower uptake of hard sausage baits such as the Yathong sausage. We have found uptake of FOXOFF® and liver or meat to be similarly high and uniform at all locations and at all times and regardless of what alternative feed is available.
However, especially in coastal areas, foxes scavenge along the beach so we have added a fish based bait to our range. This was also requested some years back by MLA who did not want to rely only on meat based baits. The new fish based bait for foxes is called FOXSHIELD®.
This shelf stable pre-packaged bait is only available to order. It is more expensive than the traditional baits but it is ready to be used for those who believe that a variety of baits will add to program effectiveness.
