Rabbits numbers increased during my baiting

July 18, 2022


I have more rabbits now than when I started.


Rabbits will recruit from up to 800m away, so if they pick up on the fact there is new palatable/sweet food available they will move to it. As the first fed rabbits die they will be replaced by new ones from further away and this could actually be more rabbits than you started with, especially if you have no rabbit proof fencing and your neighbours are not following any type of rabbit control programme. Eventually if you keep the bait levels up the numbers will drop. Coordinating a programme with your neighbouring properties is an effective way of reducing the chances of increased rabbit numbers through recruiting.
