Biocontrol is a specialised tool for a specific applications. Rabbit biocontrol has been available to landholders since 2017. Landholders often rely on biocontrol as a single option and have unrealistic expectations of the impact. Not undertaking complementary control methods can result in population immunity and the decreased efficacy of the biocontrol.
The PHBG provides the means to increase landholder awareness and understanding of best practice methods for controlling rabbits. The foundation of effective management is integrated control methods. This project will provide biocontrol to landholders who meet eligibility criteria.
