The last pest control run was undertaken before the Christmas holidays. A large number of pests have been killed over the past six months including Wild Cats, Stoats, Weasels, Hedgehogs, and rats. Thanks to Grandy Lake Forest, a new gate was opened which allowed contractors to access the different sites more efficiently, therefore reducing the costs associated with pest control. One hundred and twenty five traps are currently operating over four properties with the intent to reduce pests along the Whangawehi Stream. Thank you to all the landowners for maintaining the traps and reporting back those results to the Project Co-ordinator.
