Our monitoring results following the pest control operation failed to find any rats, but found something else instead.
Our native Archey’s frogs were recorded through 7.5% of the rat tracking tunnels after the 1080 operation.
Archey’s frogs benefit from low rat numbers. The remains of Archey’s frogs have often been found in the stomachs of rats in Whareorino so a reduction of rat numbers mean the frogs are now a little safer in their native habitat.
