Mice baiting on the Yorke Peninsula – A Farmers Perspective

Ben Wundersitz discusses mice baiting strategies in his farming operation on the Yorke Peninsula.

Monitoring for mice activity begins in March. It pays to be pro active in controlling mice as numbers can build quickly. Current baiting strategies are only reducing mice numbers to the point where crop damage is minimize but background numbers survive.

The preferred option would be to control the whole mice population. Bait mixing stations have significantly reduced the cost of mice control making strategic control measures more affordable.
