Abstract

Vermin control measures in the pastoral areas have often been rendered less effective by the existence of a number of Vermin Boards each operating independently of its neighbours. Bonus payments for scalps for instance, have often varied considerably, even between boards with adjoining territories, so that trafficking in scalps was encouraged. Bonus payments by some boards have been excessively high, with the result that shortage of funds has soon compelled a reduction of the bonus rate which in turn has brought about a steep build-up in the vermin population.
