EUROPEAN RABBIT PROGRAM
Rabbit numbers are high in many areas of the Midlands Biosecurity Group region. Rabbits are prolific breeders and can produce five or more litters per year with an average of five young per litter. Female rabbits can breed from four months of age. There are a range of control methods used for rabbit control. Poison grain is the main form of control that should be used in conjunction with warren ripping, shooting and biological controls (i.e. virus). The MBG will provide co-ordination across land-tenure and provisions of baits and equipment.
