Free mice control workshops are planned for Molong and Cumnock to try and assist Central West farmers who are currently or about to commence sowing.
The information sessions will be presented by Senior CSIRO Health and Biosecurity Researcher, Steve Henry, who will give his findings on mice feeding habits and the efficacy of the newly approved double strength bait.
The planned workshops which will be held by Central Tablelands Landcare come after the new strength poison for approved for use earlier this week.
While the sessions are primarily for farmers, they will also contain information for the general community who have been affected by the relentless impact of mice.
"Steve [Henry] aims to empower and assist landholders and township residents in their fight against mice by sharing his research and knowledge about: reduction strategies, baiting, protection before sowing, in crop mouse control and more," Landcare said.
The first session will be this Friday at Molong Golf Club from 11.30am - 2.30pm. The next one will be on May 24 from 11.30am - 1.30pm at Cumnock Showground.
Attendees are asked to book through the website Trybooking. The sessions will also be live-streamed for those unable to attend in person.
