Splatterguns

A splattergun is an ideal tool for lantana control, particularly in steeper country or in a forest understorey. Consisting of a 5 litre spray bottle in a backpack, gas canister and handgun, the unit delivers a low volume, low pressure dose of concentrated glyphosate mix to the target plant, with very little herbicide drift. Minimal drift means minimal impact on off-target vegetation, thereby protecting regenerating forest or pasture grasses. As it delivers a low volume dose, there are less refills needed compared to using a 15 litre knapsack foliar sprayer, depending on the level of infestation.

SLCMA will provide an induction into the safe use, cleaning of the unit.

Pig traps

SLCMA has a number of pig traps available for loan by landholders. There are 2 designs: portable box traps which can be transported in a box trailer or ute; and mesh traps which are constructed with a roll of cattle mesh and star pickets on-site.

Anyone interested in hiring any of this equipment should email admin@sarinalandcare.org.au or call SLCMA on 4956 1338.
