The Peel Harvey Biosecurity Group is holding a fox control workshop at the Waroona Landcare Centre on Friday, focusing on the best practice use of “soft jaw” traps.

A field demonstration by trapping expert Eddie Juras will headline the workshop.

He will share his four decades of knowledge of fox behaviour and show how to create a successful soft jaw trapping program using a triangular system made of three traps.

Along with being shown the best ways to humanely trap the foxes, attendees will have access to information resources alongside the PHBG’s fox control equipment and subsidy information.

The workshop will run between 10am and 12pm.
