Research Institution
Nutria have damaged crops, marsh vegetation, and water control structures. The uniqueness of the marsh and coastal habitats is in jeopardy of being so damaged as to make the cost of repair astronomical. We will continue development of a unique buoyant rodenticide to be applied aerially and by hand spot-baiting for the control of nutria in remote and sensitive areas.
