Seqwater is managing invasive pest animals around the upper reaches of Hinze Dam (Numinbah Valley). Wild dogs are a restricted pest species in Queensland. As a landholder, Seqwater has a responsibility to manage pest animals on its land under the Biosecurity Act.

1080 (Sodium Fluoroacetate) is a registered pesticide for the control of wild dogs, feral pigs, rabbits and foxes. It is the most efficient, humane and species-specific pesticide currently available for restricted pest animal control in Australia.

1080 baits will be laid in the vicinity of Pocket Road and Pages Headland on Friday 17 September 2021 and will be collected 7 days later. If you are in the area, please follow signage and the instructions of trained personnel at all times.

As there is no known antidote for 1080 poisoning, please ensure domestic and working dogs are restrained or muzzled during this period. To report pest animal sightings near Hinze Dam or for more information about the pest management program, call 1300 737 928 or email [email protected]
