An integrated and multi-pronged approach to rabbit control is recommended to achieve the best outcome from your management
program. Below are some further examples of control measures you can undertake to enhance rabbit population reductions in your area.

Poison baiting for rabbit control
This is a general video only. Please check with your local authority on any restrictions and requirements regarding the use of 1080 and Pindone in your area.

Rabbit warren fumigation
Fumigation should be undertaken where warrens cannot be ripped, or used as a follow-up tool to treat any re-openings that occur
after ripping. Fumigation on its own is not enough to manage a rabbit population.

Rabbit warren ripping and harbour destruction
Warren ripping should be undertaken when rabbit numbers are at their lowest. For the majority of Australia this is late summer. If
rabbit numbers are high, then a baiting program should be undertaken before any ripping.
