Thanks to ongoing funding from Mount Alexander Shire Council, the Tarrangower Cactus Control Group has been able to provide free loans of injector kits to many local landholders over the past 10 years. We believe this has been a strong incentive to control Wheel Cactus on private properties and to be a valuable contributor to our community-based war on this noxious weed.
We know these guns become clogged up and also how fiddly this equipment is to clean, and fear there are lots of injecting kits out there now sitting idle in sheds. Our “injector fairies” love fiddling with the bits and are happy to clean and fix them, so anyone with a non-functioning injector, please bring it back to us and we’ll swap it for a working model. You can bring the old injectors to our next field day or if you can’t make it there, either call or text ‘fairy Jan’ on 0400 973 528 and she’ll organise a drop-off or pick-up.
Our next Community Field Day is on Sunday 28th May, starting at 10:30am. Come and join us for a morning in the fresh air and learn how best to destroy Wheel Cactus. The location this month is at the end of Cook’s Lane, a few kms north of Maldon, just after the turn off to Baringhup. To get there, follow Bridgewater Road out of Maldon; the route will be well signposted. The morning’s activities end with a delicious BBQ lunch and friendly chat.
