Field evaluation of four 1080 baits for dingo control

S. R. Eldridge, D. M. Berman and B. Walsh

Wildlife Research 27(5) 495 - 500
Published: 2000


Three trials were conducted to compare the effectiveness of four 1080 dingo baits (two non-refined meat baits and two highly processed manufactured baits) in reducing dingo activity in the Northern Territory. Baits were laid at water points and dingo activity was estimated from track counts along a circular path cleared around each water point before baiting, immediately after and 10 months after baiting. Significant reductions in dingo activity were observed only at water points baited with non-refined meat baits. Highly processed manufactured baits did not significantly affect dingo activity. Data for non-target and dingo prey species were also recorded, but were generally insufficient to identify any effects of baiting on these species, or any relationships between the effectiveness of bait and the availability of prey. It is recommended that non-refined meat baits be used in preference to highly processed manufactured baits for the control of dingoes in the Northern Territory.
