Did you know that rabbits are considered a serious pest in Victoria? They degrade our agricultural land, roads, parks and reserves, and they destroy native vegetation and compete with native animals for food and habitat. Rabbits are also well suited to Australian conditions and breed prolifically.

Landowners have a responsibility to take all reasonable steps to prevent the spread of rabbits and as far as possible, eradicate established pest animals from their land.

Rabbit control is most effective during early-Autumn, as breeding has generally paused during this time and rabbit populations are lower.
