On Saturday, 11th September 2010, 26 people attended a workshop at the Community Nursery. Tim Riding from ES talked about pests and how to control them. Randall Milne, Brian Rance and Nathan Cruickshank assisted Otatara residents on how and where to put traps on their properties, and other helpful suggestions. Committee members Russell and May Evans and Edith Jones recorded sales and details of interested residents.
A range of traps were displayed including rat tunnels, start-up kits and poison baits. OLG received some funding from ES and a pricelist was established with some specials on the day.
