A Guide to Wallaby Lures: Effective Tools for Targeted Control

In New Zealand, the presence of wallabies poses a significant threat to native ecosystems and agricultural lands. These non-native species compete with indigenous wildlife for resources and contribute to habitat degradation. Effective management strategies are crucial in mitigating their impact and one of the key components in managing them is the use of wallaby lures. Connovation offers two main types of wallaby lures designed to attract these animals, making it easier to control their populations. This blog explores the features and benefits of these lures.

Understanding Wallaby Lures

Wallaby lures are specialised products designed to attract wallabies to specific locations, facilitating their capture or control. By appealing to the wallabies' senses, these lures increase the effectiveness of traps and bait stations. Connovation provides two primary types of wallaby lure: Ferafeed 213 Paste and Ferafeed Pellets. Both types have unique features tailored to specific management needs.
