Pest Control Services

The SSAA Farmer Assist program has been developed to enable farmers with wildlife management issues to seek pest control assistance from licensed and insured SSAA members.

The Sporting Shooters’ Association of Australia (SSAA) launched its SSAA Farmer Assist program throughout Australia in a staged roll-out. This program has been developed to provide farmers and landholders with a simple way of finding qualified SSAA members to undertake shooting as part of pest control activities. This service is provided at no cost. That’s right… It is FREE to use!

The program has a unique online portal that acts as an introductory service. Farmers and landholders simply register and then use the program’s Jobs Board to seek pest control assistance to deal with problem wildlife on their properties. Once the request has been added to the Jobs Board, only registered members approved for the program can respond to the request. Farmers then simply choose which member/s they want to contact after viewing submitted applications.

For extra peace of mind, all SSAA members participating in the SSAA Farmer Assist program are covered by the Association’s $20 million public liability insurance policy. Members involved in the program have also committed to a strict code of practice that incorporates safety, animal welfare and ethical shooting. Members must undertake an assessment to display a professional-like shooting standard.

Our members can assist with controlling a wide variety of pest animals. The main species of pest animals that we can help with are listed below:

The SSAA has spent time and effort developing this program to help our farming community. They are a very important part of our society and this program is one way that our members can show their appreciation and support. We are committed to helping our farmers tackle pest animals. Pest animals negatively impact both Australia's agricultural and natural resources.
