The timing of pest control operations in relation to secondary poisoning prevention

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The use of intensive, irrigated agriculture causes and explosion in the population of some wild animals, especially in desert and semi-desert areas. Control operations might cause considerable damage to non-target organisms, including raptors. A case of control operation on a chuckar partridge population in semi-desert area in Israel, without harming non-target organisms, is reported here. The timing of the operation and the significance of familiarity with the pest behaviour and their predators' annual cycle is essential for the success of such an operation.
