Pest Detective is an interactive field guide to help people in New Zealand identify the presence of pest animals.

Pest Detective website went live on 25 November at a function hosted by the National Pest Control Agencies (NPCA), which initiated the project.

NPCA National Co-ordinator, Maurice Kennedy, said Pest Detective has filled a gap by bringing together, in one place, pest animal sign information for New Zealanders.

“It’s been a complex project, involving not only the compilation of information but also the development of a website as a custom-designed search tool and the sourcing of several hundred images.
