Our Management Strategies

The emphasis of any control program should be on effective management and control to reduce the damage to production and conservation values in the most cost-effective way.

We employ a five-step management strategy to control vertebrate pests:

  1. Inspect the problem
  2. Monitor (e.g. spotlighting)
  3. Map area
  4. Design and implement a sustained control program aimed at eradication
  5. Initial control methods (e.g. warren destruction, trapping, poisoning)

Warren destruction is the most effective method for long-term rabbit control. However, landholders should adopt an integrated control approach incorporating appropriate strategies that EnviroAg Services can offer at competitive rates.

Follow-up control is essential. If only the initial control methods cited above are used then population recovery for most vertebrate pest animals is good-to-excellent. For example and with regard to rabbits, follow-up control methods such as surface harbour destruction and warren destruction is essential to reduce the potential for population recovery.

We carry out pest control in Canberra, Queanbeyan, Yass, Murrumbateman, Goulburn, Palerang Shire including Bungendore and Braidwood, South Coast, Cooma-Monaro, Wingecarribee and many more.
