A redistribution program for Neomolgus capillatus in Tasmania was undertaken in 1992-95 by direct transfer of live predators from established sites. Acceleration of the slow natural dispersal rate was facilitated by field vacuum collections being possible for 8 months/year, excluding winter and early spring when active stages of N. capillatus were in low numbers or absent.
