How to use Pindone for Rabbits:
1. Remove all domestic stock from the area being treated.
2. Locate all signs of rabbits. This is critical, as the placement of bait is vital to the success of the operation.
3. Rabbits can be identified by their droppings, which are oval shaped, about one centimeter in length, and often in small heaps.
4. Rabbits prefer short pasture and usually graze the pasture very low. The area they graze can be identified by this
short grazing or by scrapes or scratchings in the pasture.
5. DO NOT lay bait if heavy rain is expected within a day of laying the bait.
6. Rabbits are neophobic (fearful of anything new), so place bait stations without bait for a few days so that the rabbits get used to them.
7. Allow extra bait. There will be more rabbits than you see, by a factor of approximately five times.
8. Pellets to be ONLY used at night, and close the bait station during the day to stop birds eating it. For the first four nights, check the bait stations the next day to ensure a continuous supply of bait. If bait continues to be consumed after night four, continue refilling the bait station until consumption reduces significantly.
9. Once bait consumption reduces significantly, check for further signs after another 10 to 14 days. Repeat the application if there are still signs of rabbits.
Using a bait station:
Pindone Rabbit pellet bait should be applied via a NOPESTS Multifeeder bait station or similar.
Scratch the earth in front of the bait station and turn holes down so that the bait can be easily accessed.
Ensure that the grass is short, as rabbits love short grass.
If your neighboring property is not undertaking rabbit control, this can affect your success. Sometimes it’s best to join forces and combat the situation together.
