The Hawke’s Bay Regional Council contracts out all provision for Possum Control Services. All input Possum Control Contracts requires Monitoring to determine whether the Possum Control Contractor has achieved the required performance measure. PCA performance contracts and compliance scenarios are measured by the residual trap catch index (RTCI) by use of leg hold traps.
Possum Control Areas also require Monitoring to ensure possum populations are maintained below required thresholds by landowners. The main method of monitoring for PCA trend and education monitors is by use of chew cards. Separate prices are required for both monitoring methods.
