PestSmart Factsheet: Judas technique for feral goat control

Feral goats (Capra hircus) are an ecological problem worldwide, particularly in closed systems, such as islands, where native plants, animals and insects have evolved in the absence of large mammalian herbivores. Due to their grazing habits, goats alter plant species composition and hinder regeneration of vegetation. Goats can also cause soil erosion and reduce the […]

Planning landscape-scale rabbit control

Wild rabbits are increasing in numbers, apparently because the effectiveness of rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD) as a biocontrol is waning. This means that the $400 million in annual benefits gained from releasing the disease in Australia is slowly being eroded. Once again, there is increasing reliance on mechanical and chemical rabbit control methods such as […]

GEN003: Trapping using soft net traps

Soft net traps consist of a flexible metal frame and netting and/or bag which collapses over the animal when triggered. Soft net traps rely on entanglement to secure and hold the targeted animal, potentially reducing the risk of injury. Soft net traps are used to trap feral and nuisance domestic cats and dogs, foxes, birds […]

A Review of Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease in Australia

The introduction of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus in 1995 marked an important milestone in Australia’s long battle with introduced rabbits. This review considers what is known about the virus as a biological control agent: from its molecular structure to its ability to survive in the environment and its capacity for infecting rabbits and causing acute […]

Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease: Wild rabbits show resistance to infection with Czech strain-351 RHDV initially released in Australia

Challenge tests on seronegative sub-adult rabbits from 9 sites in south-eastern Australia showed that wild rabbits have developed resistance to infection with Czech strain 351 RHDV originally released in Australia. Differences in infection rates were observed between populations and in comparison with domestic rabbits used as an unselected reference population. Selection for resistance to infection […]

PestSmart Factsheet: Fumigation for rabbit control

Fumigation is a valuable tool in successful rabbit management programs. It is an effective follow-up technique to poison baiting and warren ripping, and is a particularly useful control method in areas where other techniques cannot be used (eg poison baiting). Fumigation works by replacing the air in warrens with lethal gasses, which are in-turn inhaled […]
