    It will be interesting to see how long the drop in pest numbers lasts. It is so close to residential areas and farmland on all sides. I would pick that the rats will flood back in replacing their dead mates and possums quick smart. The reality is you would have to slowly fence off every part and then 1080 it. That is a lot of rat/possum/stoat proof fencing. Also interesting as to why the other methods of control have "Failed" and pest numbers are increasing? Why now...

    178 square kms is tiny, we get the biggest poison drops in history down here.
