Managing Invasive Animals

Pest Animals 
There are a number of methods available to control invasive animals. Successful long-term management of invasive animals relies on cooperation with neighbours and the coordination of control activities.

Some chemical and physical control techniques can be hazardous to people, stock and property, and current legislation enforces strict guidelines for their use. When choosing a control option, landowners may need to seek advice from Council or Biosecurity Queensland.

Agricultural chemical products should always be used in accordance with label instructions or permits issued by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority.

For further information on control methods please visit the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) website, PestSmart website or contact a Pest Management Officer on 07 4932 9000 or 1300 22 55 77.
