Information for regional communities impacted by the mouse plague

The use of pesticides to control mice is necessary given the devastating impacts that the mouse plague is having on people, businesses and properties in NSW.

While the risks to human health are low, all pesticide products, as well as dead and dying animals suspected of being poisoned, need to be carefully handled to avoid impacts to human health, other native wildlife, pets and the environment.

The EPA has developed three fact sheets with information to assist residents, business owners and those who handle wildlife.
