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 12 years. 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.
