His background is in Farming, Fencing, Mapping, GIS & Direct Seeding Trees. He has been a Contractor since 2007, prior to that worked for Glen Wilkin.

Vern Simsen - Executive Committee Member

VERN operates ALPINE PEST ANIMAL & WEED SERVICE, "A.P.A.W.S".

As the name suggests, he specializes in vermin and feral animal control. Also weed control in the Alpine and surrounding areas of North East Victoria.

All of A.P.A.W.S. vehicles are four wheel drive, fitted with 500LT tanks and quickspray remote control hose reels.

Most of Vern's peak season work is handspraying but for other situations and awkward areas, Vern uses some backpacking, quad bikes for those areas not accessible in a vehicle and boomjetting where a full boom isn't an option. A.P.A.W.S. does not undertake broadacre boomspraying.

If you have queries or questions regarding weed control, what plants are classified as weeds in this area or if you want to structure a plan to tackle a large weed problem ie. blackberry, broom, gorse, paterson curse, etc. give us a call. We are happy to talk to you OBLIGATION FREE.
