Safety and proper use of DOGABAIT®
Protect your working dogs when baiting
Keep working and pet dogs well away from baits. Restrict them in pens or on chains if known to wander, and use muzzles if dogs are to be used in baited areas.
Leave working dogs at home when laying or checking baits.
Availability and approvals for use
DOGABAIT® PAPP baits for wild dogs have been approved by APVMA. Legal instructions and restrictions for use are found on the approved product labels and must be followed. In addition, some constraints differ between States, so local instructions must also be followed.
Approved labels and MSDS sheets are available on the ACTA web site: (http://www.animalcontrol.com.au/MSDS.htm).
Due the imposition of RESTRICTED S7 by the National Drugs & Poisons Scheduling Committee (NDPSC), only approved users can access PAPP bait products. Approvals and some constraints may differ between States, so local instructions must also be followed.
DOGABAIT® Baits, in pails of 10 or 50 baits, are available from traditional suppliers of 1080 baits in all states.
FOXECUTE® Baits are available in packs of 10 or 40 baits.
Immediate neighbours must be notified 72 hours before DOGABAIT® PAPP baits are applied.
Baits must be kept out of reach of children and stored in a locked area.

Signs must be put up at property entrances before the start and remain in place until 4 weeks after the end of approved programs, or until residual baits are recovered.
Reusable warning signs printed in UV resistant ink and on water resistant corflute are available from ACTA.
