Review of rodent control for the Australian Chicken Meat and Egg Industries
This project aims to gain a greater understanding of the challenges faced by the chicken meat and egg industries as individual producers attempt to implement their own specifically tailored rodent control programs. The first phase of the project involves consultations with a diversity of chicken meat and egg industry stakeholders including independent producers, larger market players and processors covering different production systems, different stages in the supply chain to identify their current implementation of rodenticides and broader rodent control strategies. The second phase of the project delivers a comprehensive review of scientific literature on available and emerging rodent control products suitable for implementation in the chicken meat and egg production systems. The review will consider options for dealing with plague situations.
