Farmers warned when combatting mice numbers

mouse generic.jpgFarmers are being urged to follow best chemical practice in combatting mice numbers, which have now reached plague proportions in some areas of SA.

Recent reports to the Department of Primary Industries and Regions and South Australia, from the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority, have raised concerns about compliance with mandatory instruction requirements, on mice bait product labels.

The Agricultural and Veterinary products legislation states that it is an offence to not follow mandatory instructions, that state a specific chemical must not be used, exceed rates on a label and or use unregistered products to control mice.

Fines of up to $35 000 apply for each offence are possible if found guilty of a breach.
