pests in Australia

see also:

  • cane toads
  • European wasps
    • these imported, aggressive pests tend to be mainly a problem in relatively dry inland areas
    • in some regional towns they can be a real problem as they feed off dead insects on car grills when they park at shopping centres - example towns include Yea, Yackandandah, Tumbarumba
  • mice
    • mice plagues often occur in inland Australia in particular after flood events along the Murray River
    • mice, when in large numbers can cause havoc with campers - mouse urine on canvas, holes eaten in canvas, etc
    • keep all food enclosed and try green camphor moth balls as deterrents
    • exposure to rodent urine does run the risk of catching the serious infection leptospirosis
