General Instructions:

PUBLIC NOTIFICATION

The PAPP dose in CPE PAPP Fox Capsule (400 mg/capsule) will kill any sized fox and also

small domestic and working dogs. Neighbours must be notified to allow them to take

appropriate action. The notification must advise that steps (e.g. restraint, muzzling) need to

be taken to ensure that domestic dogs do not gain access to Canid Pest Ejectors (CPE)

loaded with PAPP capsules. The notification must specify the dates between which CPE

PAPP Fox Capsule placement will occur. This notification should be given to all adjoining

landholders at least 72 hours in advance. A record of the notifications must be kept. If

deployment of ejectors is not undertaken within the dates specified an additional notification

must be made.

POISON NOTICES

Signage is compulsory for all lands where use of CPE PAPP Fox Capsules occurs. Do not set

ejectors with CPE PAPP Fox Capsules until signage is in place. Signage must include – date

ejectors are placed, contact numbers, toxin name (PAPP), target animal and a warning that

domestic animals and pets can be affected. Signs must be placed according to requirements

specified by the relevant State/Territory authority. These sign must remain up for at least 4

weeks after the authorised period of ejector deployment has expired or after all untaken CPE

PAPP Fox Capsules have been collected.

DISTANCE RESTRICTIONS

It is important to reduce risks of accidental poisoning of working and pet dogs. Ejectors must

be placed at least 150m from a dwelling; 20m from permanent or flowing water bodies; 5m

from boundary fences; and 5m from the edge of formed public roadways.

Resistance Warning:

Precautions:

DO NOT transport CPE PAPP Fox Capsules in such a way that unauthorised persons can

access the CPE PAPP Fox Capsules. CPE PAPP Fox Capsules must be kept in a secure

section of the vehicle when transporting.

DO NOT place CPE PAPP Fox Capsules in a position accessible to children, livestock, or

domestic animals or pets.

CPE PAPP Fox Capsules must be stored as per label instructions except when being

loaded into an ejector as per instructions.

Collect all CPE PAPP Fox Capsules following completion of the fox control campaign.

Dispose of damaged and unusable capsules as per the Storage and Disposal instructions

below.

Re-handling statement

Do not re-handle CPE equipment or unused or fired capsules unless wearing cotton overalls

buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing), eye protection (safety glasses or

goggles) and chemical resistant gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day's use.

Protections:

PROTECTION OF DOMESTIC/ WORKING DOGS

The PAPP dose in CPE PAPP Fox CAPSULES (400 mg/capsule) will kill any fox and also

domestic and working dogs of a smaller size. The person using the capsules should advise

neighbours to tie up working or pet dogs and ensure they do not enter the control area

during fox control operations. Ejectors may be temporarily deactivated or removed if

working dogs are required to muster livestock in paddocks where the devices and fox

capsules are deployed. Alternatively working dogs can be muzzled prior to entering

paddocks to safeguard against accidental poisoning. In the event of accidental poisoning

seek immediate veterinary assistance.

DO NOT place the CPE PAPP Fox Capsules in a position accessible to domestic dogs.

DO NOT allow domestic dogs in areas where ejectors are set unless appropriately

restrained or muzzled.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEA AND ENVIRONMENT

PAPP is highly toxic for dogs.

Toxic to birds and native wildlife. The use of this product as directed is not expected

to result in exposure of birds; however, some species of native wildlife are capable of

triggering the device.

To protect native wildlife, ejectors should not be deployed with CPE PAPP Fox Capsules at

times when, or in locations where, non-target wildlife are likely to be harmed by them. Risks

can be reduced by appropriate selection of lure, correct placement of ejectors, and

avoidance of ejector deployment during the main breeding season. In order to assess the

risk posed by fox control programs, consult local government agency, the ACTA web site

(www.animalcontrol.com.au) or Feral.org web site for information on non-target animal

distribution, conservation status, habitat preference, diet, tolerance to PAPP, body weight

and size of home range. A sub-lethal exposure to PAPP is rapidly metabolised, excreted

and an affected animal recovers quickly within hours and without any long term injury.

To protect goannas and lace monitors, place ejectors during the winter months (when they

are less active) in areas of high abundance.

Few animals other than dogs and foxes have the pull-strength to activate ejectors.

DO NOT feed capsules to non-target animals including birds.

DO NOT contaminate dams, rivers, streams, waterways or drains with the product or used

containers.

Storage and

Disposal:

Do not store CPE PAPP Fox Capsules in a position accessible to children, livestock or

domestic pets. At the completion of a control program, dispose of as per instructions below.

This pesticide is only to be kept, stored or transported in a container bearing this APVMA-

approved label, as supplied by the manufacturer. Store in a secure locked facility. Store in the

closed, original container in a dry, cool area out of direct sunlight. DO NOT allow capsules to

contaminate foodstuffs, or feed, for human or non-target animal consumption. DO NOT reuse

containers for any other purpose.

Triple rinse empty containers before disposal. Break, crush or puncture and dispose of empty

containers in an approved waste management facility. Capsules collected from non-activated

ejectors must be disposed of if damaged or showing signs of wear but can be re-used if

undamaged. Retrieved used, damaged or worn capsules should be delivered with empty

packaging for appropriate disposal to an approved waste management facility. If an approved

waste management facility is not available, bury capsules, any PAPP contaminated rinsate

and empty packaging 500 mm below the surface in a disposal pit at the site of use specifically

marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots in

compliance with relevant Local, State or Territory government regulations. DO NOT burn

empty container or product.

To the extent possible, animal carcasses should be collected and destroyed according to the

requirements of the State/Territory in which use has occurred.

Safety Directions:

Very dangerous, poisonous if swallowed. Do not inhale dust. Do not touch or rub eyes,

nose or mouth with hand. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. If on skin and after each

ejector placement, wash thoroughly with soap and water. When opening opening the

container and using the product, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or

equivalent clothing), gauntlet-length chemical resistant gloves and safety glasses or

goggles. After use and before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face

thoroughly with soap and water. After each day’s use wash gloves, goggles, face shield,

and contaminated clothing.

First Aid Instructions:

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia

131126, New Zealand 0800 764 766. Remove from contaminated area. Apply artificial

respiration if not breathing. If poisoning occurs get a doctor or hospital quickly.

Restraints

DO NOT set more than five (5) ejectors with CPE PAPP Fox Capsules per kilometre of trail or

more than 20 ejectors with CPE PAPP Fox Capsules per 100 hectares;

Situation

Pest

Rate

Non-crop and bushland areas including:

National parks,

Nature reserves,

State forests and

Private property

(Vulpes

vulpes)

Place a maximum of 5 ejector stations

per km of trail or a maximum of 20

ejector stations per 100ha (1km x

1km). Ejectors may be concentrated to

a localised area of fox activity but not

at rates above the maximum limit.

Critical Use Comments:

Place Canid Pest Ejectors (CPE) along the sides of trails and in other areas where fox

activity has been observed and where the ejectors are unlikely to be contacted

accidentally. Mark the location of the ejector as appropriate (e.g. using flagging tape,

spray marker or a GPS coordinate) to ensure they can be relocated for checking during

and recovery afetr a program. Care should be taken when marking ejector sites so that

detection by unauthorised persons is minimised.

All CPEs must be set in accordance with the instructions accompanying the ejector to

ensure activation when the lure head is pulled by a fox.

Lures used for fox control programs may be used in conjunction with ejector devices to

increase efficiency where appropriate.

Note that the CPEs will be readily found and activated by wild or stray dogs present in a

control area. Additional integrated control programs to reduce wild dog populations will

improve fox control program success using CPE PAPP Fox Capsules. Sand pads and/or

remote cameras may be used to identify the species responsible for activating the ejector.

Programs should be reviewed and modified regularly to maximise fox control efficiency.

Ensure all safety precautions and directions (see below) are followed when loading

CPE PAPP Fox Capsules into and setting the ejector. IMPORTANT: Persons loading

and setting ejectors must follow safety directions including wearing eye protection

and always keeping their head and body to the side of the ejector to minimise

exposure from accidental activation.

Use raw or dried meat lures or pre-prepared lure heads with the ejector to attract foxes

and encourage them to pull on the ejector head so that it activates and releases PAPP

into the fox’s mouth

Reload activated ejectors with CPE PAPP Fox Capsules where evidence suggests

additional foxes are present in the area. Continue to replace capsules until repeat checks

show ejectors have not been activated or for the period of the control program.

Loaded ejectors must be checked at least every 2 months where vehicle access is

available and at least every 4 months in remote areas where vehicle access is limited

The lure on the lure head will deteriorate over time depending on the lure and

environmental conditions. The lure material or lure should be replaced or reapplied on a

regular basis to ensure lure head remains attractive to foxes.

Loaded ejectors should be checked more often where the fox or wild dog populations are

high.

Remove all ejectors and capsules at the end of the control program. Ejectors must be

cleaned by washing in soapy water and rinsing in clean water between control programs

to remove PAPP residue.

Between control programs, ejectors should be maintained and serviced according to the

CPE advisory information to ensure they function properly.
