Professional pest animal control

BioWorks is a highly competent business unit specialising in the control of pest animals. The BioWorks team has a strong commitment to professionalism, service and results.

BioWorks is the primary operator in the Regional Possum Predator Control Programme (RPPCP) for the Wellington Region, covering over 75,000 hectares annually. The RPPCP predominantly focuses on maintaining low possum and mustelid densities, creating two key regional benefits:

  • Conservation and biodiversity enhancement regionally
  • Bovine tuberculosis insurance through reduced Tb incidence in cattle and deer    

BioWorks operates with a core of highly experienced and skilled planning and field staff and recruits fixed term contract staff during busy periods. The unit operates from Greater Wellington's offices in Masterton and Upper Hutt, specialising in:

  • Aerial Vertebrate Toxic Agent (VTA) Operations
  • Possum and Mustelid Control
  • Landscape scale predator and pest control

BioWorks is able to carry out a wide range of multispecies pest control work under contract, so please contact the unit if you wish to discuss pest control opportunities.
