Warragul Urban Landcare members have been busy over the Winter months with a Pindone baiting program.

Following on from a very successful summer rabbit baiting program arranged in partnership with the Baw Baw Shire and Dominic Bromilow from Deeper Green Integrated Pest Management a number of Warragul Urban Landcare members have been winter baiting with Pindone Oat baits.

Members including the Warragul Rotary Club Christmas tree farm have been baiting in the Toorongo Court and Buntine Drive area over the last month.
So far the winter baiting program has reduced the number of rabbits being counted along with many rabbit carcasses being disposed of.

With the rabbit breeding season upon us it is important to keep up the fight against this pest. Members will be using a range of techniques including oat baiting with Pindone, collapsing of burrows and vegetation removal.

Signs will be placed at the entrance to property's undertaking the baiting. We will be making every effort to pick up dead rabbits but dog owners should keep their pets on a leash and watch them while in the area to make sure they don’t eat any dead rabbits.

The program aims to reduce the economic and environmental damage caused by rabbits.
