Recent studies are showing that rabbits are acquiring an antibody response to RHD virus due to development of immunity in young rabbits and possibly also due to a benign form of the virus conferring protective immunity. Myxomatosis is also killing fewer rabbits than when first released.
Recent studies show that, after a respite of nearly a decade, rabbits are again damaging landscapes, crops and seedlings.
Rabbits can be controlled by a variety of means including destruction and fumigation of warrens, poisoning with pindone or 1080 baits, shooting and by exclusion fencing. Often a variety of techniques are needed to achieve the desired goal of local eradication. Controlling only 90% of rabbits in one year will result in having the same numbers again in the following season. It is known that even one rabbit/ha can reduce seedling regeneration.
Rural merchants in Victoria can provide RABBAIT® Pindone Oat Bait to any landholder without any special permits.
All Agsafe accredited merchants in Victoria only can now also provide RABBAIT® 1080 Oat Bait to holders of a 1080-endorsed ACUP permit. Full bait user declarations apply for 1080 dosed baits.
ACTA now supplies fresh carrot baits as free-feed, Pindone coated, or 1080 coated baits.
Unlike the oat products which are stable if stored, the carrot baits must be used immediately. Thus pre-ordering is essential and product cannot be returned, once made to order.
We have good freight logistics to most parts of Victoria and work with users to minimize delivery costs. We also allow pick up direct from our production facility. ACTA RABBAIT® carrot baits are made using a specialist high speed cutter to achieve near perfect bait cubes with no juice or unwanted fragments. ACTA Carrot Baits can be safely transported long distances without refrigeration. We can supply any quantity to suit any program.
RABBAIT® 1080 Carrot Baits and RABBAIT® Pindone Carrot Baits are available in fully labelled 10kg pails and 100kg drums. The drums can be recycled if triple rinsed clean and returned, to further reduce costs.
Where possible we prefer to supply the bait via qualified contractors who are members of the Vertebrate Pest Managers Association (VPMA). These experienced pest controllers can conduct full programs on any sized property. However, we can supply direct if no local contractor is available.
Prices are seasonal. Please call ACTA for the current price for RABBAIT® 1080 Carrot Bait and RABBAIT® Pindone Carrot Bait.
For orders and planning phone Ben, Toula or Ubie on 03 9308 9688 or fax requirements to 03 9308 9622. With teamwork it is possible to get fresh baits to most parts of Victoria and border areas in 10kg pails or 100kg recyclable drums
