Has The NSW Government Done Enough To Combat The Mice Plague In Rural NSW?

For more than six months, eastern parts of rural and regional Australia have been dealing with a relentless mice plague. The plague has seen schools, homes and hospitals overrun, farmers lose hundreds of thousands of dollars in crops and entire towns suffocated by the pungent smell left by the rodents. The emotional, economic and mental toll of the situation has been profound, with a family living near the Narrabri Shire, in NSW’s North West, recently left homeless as a result of the rodents. What do you think LiveTribers? Has the NSW Government done enough to combat the Mice Plague in Rural NSW?

    In the cereal and legume cropping areas of Australia mouse plagues occur every 5 to 10 years when local conditions are ideal. Much like locust infestations. As long as the State Depts of Agriculture have access to subsidised Zinc Phosphide the safest and most effective chemical rodent killer then these regular infestations can be controlled.

    I think it is to do with Climate Change and yes there will be many challenges just not NSW but Australia as a whole and to combat it will be very trying and hard as this is Climate Change issue.
