The Department of the Environment is continuing with its strategy to remove the Barbary Macaques frequenting urban ‘hot spots’, through the use of noisemakers. The method was successful some months back, but it is essential to periodically repeat this.
Noise-makers will cause loud ‘banging’ noises in the areas of Laguna Estate, Trafalgar and Gardiner’s Road. The operation will commence today and will run for a period of two or three weeks. Further information of any expansion of ‘hot spots’, which may be tackled with firecrackers, is to be issued shortly.
