Deer repellent, withholding periods, exclusion zones? Here is the place to find out more information about hunting and 1080
A 1080 bait (0.15% active ingredient) weighing 12 grams contains about 18 milligrams of 1080 and the lethal number of baits is dependant on an animal's body size.
The lethal dosage for these species are:
Dog- 0.06 milligrams per kilo of body weight
Pig- 0.4 to 1.0 mg/kg of body weight
Deer- 0.5 mg/kg of body weight.
Eg: A dog weighing 9 kilos would only need to consume one bait, most deer weighing 60 kilos would need to consume at least 2 bait and a pig weighing 40 kilos would need to consume between one and three baits - refer DoC Toxicology Manual.
