Press: Possum Peppers

Post by Cuttings » 07 Oct 2017, 09:21

Northern Advocate, NZ. 7-Oct- 2017

When it comes to pesky possums some people see red - and some just see grey.

One entry in the WWF-New Zealand's Conservation Innovation Awards 2017 has added another tone, a dusty ash grey, to the 50 shades.

The entry from Kerikeri promotes a new take on an old-world biodynamic method of ridding fields of rodents and other furry pests.

It is called peppering, and involves burning the pelts and carcasses of said pests until they're little more than ash, grinding it finely, mixing it with water and ''spray painting'' the substance back on the affected land.
