Feral Pest Management

The City undertakes feral pest management to help control environmentally damaging animals in natural areas. The City's most problematic pest animals include foxes, feral and stray cats, rabbits, feral bees and feral wasps. Foxes and feral cats prey on local wildlife such as local birds, small mammals, small lizards, and frogs. Rabbits degrade bushland areas by preventing the regeneration and establishment of native vegetation through grazing. Feral bees displace our native birds and bees by occupying nesting hollows with their hives. You can help by notifying the City if you observe a feral pest or beehive in your area.
