Farmers in the East Australians Expect good harvests this year after years of severe drought. After all, it has been raining again and again recently. However, as grains grow, another problem has developed: the state of New South Wales has been plagued by the worst mouse plague in nearly 40 years. Rodents destroy crops, bite people and spread diseases.
State Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall told the 2GB radio station on Thursday that the government was now providing about 32 million euros in financial assistance to its farmers and producers.
It aims to offset the losses caused by the damage, and small businesses and homes should also get a discount on the purchase of traps and poisons. Farmers need to get free of chemical poison bait “to fight this pain”.
Marshall said: “We have not seen a plague of this magnitude since the early 1980s, and everyone believed that the cold winter conditions would stop the number of rats. Nothing has worked yet. “
Blake is no longer a matter for grain producers. On the contrary, the mental health of the people is now affected and businesses and entire cities are damaged.
The poison that has so far been banned should help
He announced that he wanted to get approval for a poison that had previously been banned. The so-called promethazine is the “strongest mouse poison” in the world. According to the Minister, “Like the use of Nebam against rats”. The rodent plague has been affecting farmers and officials in the state for months.
From early January to late April, 23 cases of leptospirosis were reported to the state Department of Health. It is a rare disease that can lead to kidney failure and meningitis – often transmitted by rats. According to the Australian news agency Aam Aadmi Party, there will be 11 cases by 2020.
