GET YOUR RESTRICTED CHEMICAL PERMIT

Permits are required for landholders to possess and use registered S7 pesticides such as 1080, PAPP or strychnine products for vertebrate animal control on leasehold or freehold land. 

The use of these chemicals is restricted by law and confined to certain areas of the state. Before using, you need to complete appropriate training, ensure you comply with the relevant Acts, Regulations and Legislation, and must apply for and obtain the appropriate permit(s) to purchase and use these chemicals.

An online course is available through DPIRD's external Moodle site. Any person needing to complete the course may self-enrol and a tip sheet is available in the documents to the right of this page if extra assistance is required.

REPORT FERAL PEST ACTIVITY

Reports are vital to direct the activities and accuracy of the Licensed Pest Management Technicians (LPMT). All landholders are encouraged to keep an eye out for signs of feral pest activity.

 

Report directly to the Northern Biosecurity Group or via the FeralScan reporting app.
