Introduced Pests Kill

The introduced pests are:

  1. Possum
  2. Stoats
  3. Rats
    • Bush rats
    • Ship rats (the ones that like living in your roof and eating electrical cables)
  4. Mice

We don’t have any organised community actions against pests, but they kill native birds and insects and have been known to destroy entire houses by causing electrical fires.

If you want to organise better pest destruction or lobby for better funding for the same please get in touch with us at committee@waitarua.org.nz
