Baiting of feral cats with sodium fluroacetate (1080)

A feral cat bait containing 1080 is currently registered for use in Western Australia and it has been used in other states under permits from the APVMA and state agencies.

These permits are time consuming to complete, and so outside of WA, the bait is only used to control cats in well-funded private or public conservation reserves.

A Centre for Invasive Species Solutions project project is currently underway to significantly progress the APVMA registration of the bait for use across Australia, providing a broad-scale tool to control feral cats.

More information will become available soon.
