The most

cost

efficient method to control rabbits and prevent reinfestation is to work cooperatively with neighbours.

The use

pmdone baits is only the first step in control

rabbits. Follow-up action consisting

destructions, both above ground surface harbour and warren destruction are required

control is to be achieved.

Consult your local

authority for more infonnation on how to complete a full control program.

Rabbits poisoned with pindone usually die after a delay while body stores

clotting factors and vitamin K are

exhausted.

Overall rabbit numbers are expected to progressively decline, conunencing about

10 days after the first

application.

Although rabbit poisoning programs can be

canied

year-round, baiting is most effective when alternative food for

rabbits is scarce (eg end

summer or early autumn).

Baiting may be less effective during the breeding season.

Check rabbit prone areas

at least 4 times a year. Spotlight counts are the most common method used.

POISONING

PROGRAM

Monitor

Site

Assess

Infestation

Before starting a poisoning program,

locate warrens, rabbit harbour and feeding areas.

Identify rabbit grazing and

scratching areas.

The placement

bait is critical.

Consult your local

authority

more information is required on how

to implement any

ofthe

following:

Map your paddocks and land areas identifying rabbit feeding areas,

rabbit prone soils,

areas

wildlife

congregation rocky areas,

warrenslburrows (size and number),

"rippable"

warrens, steep areas,

unsuited to ripping

with machinery, rivers,

streams, above ground surface harbour;

and show any rabbit free areas,

boundary fences

(rabbit

proof

or not),

spotlight transect routes.

Spotlight counts should be undertaken 3 consecutive nights commencing

hour after it is dark identifying areas

high,

medium or Jow rabbit infestation.

Other methods

assessing infestation can be used in conjunction with the

spotlight

counts:

Warren Monitoring counts to identify how many burrows are active or non-active over the monitoring period.

Warren/rabbit counts

involves counting

rabbits that

have

emerged from warrens. This method gives better

appreciation

the age

rabbits on each warren.

The Gibb,

McLean and other modified Scales -

theses scales

may be used as indicators

relative rabbit abundance.

Notify

Neighbours

Landholders (in NSW) must ensure that at least three days notice is given to and received by all

adjoining neighbours

before laying Pindone baits.

Notification can be given by telephone or personal contact or where this is not possible,

by mail.

The landholder must put up notices specifying the target

animal

and date

poison application inunediately before

Pindone poisoning operations start

on his/her property.

These notices must remain up for at least

four weeks and are

to be placed at:

All entrances to the property

All entrances to the actual

poisoning site, and

At the extremities

property boundaries fronting a public thoroughfare.

Notices are available from APB (WA), Rural

Lands Protection Boards (NSW),

your local

authority and chemical

retailers.

Laying Bait

Shallow furrows and swathes of mown grass are commonly referred to as trails.

Whatever the method

laying trails,

they must be laid through feeding areas in the area

most

rabbit activity as identified during monitoring

rabbit

populations. Two locations are reconunended for bait

trails,

one reasonable close (but not closer than 30m) to where

rabbits are living and one a further 40m out.

If rabbit populations are high,

there may be a need for baiting a further

out.

These

trail

positions are only a guide and depending on experience,

can be altered:

aim is to

maximise the chance that all rabbits in the local

area will encounter the

bait

trail.

Furrow baiting

Lay the bait in trails made by cutting continuous furrow IDem wide and 2cm deep (to a maximum depth

Ocm)

between rabbit feeding areas and harbour then around and through feeding areas.

For large scale programs use 16km

oftrail

per 100 ha with trails 40m apart.

In areas

loose sand it is best to replace the cutting disc

the baitlayer with car wheel

and tyre so that the oats are

laid on a compacted, flat surface.

This technique is only necessary

the area to be baited consists largely or entirely

loose sandy soils with little or not vegetation.

Vitamin K1 (phytomenadione) only, can be used as an antidote if

patient shows signs of anticoagulant poisoning (bleeding,

haemorrhage). Repeat as necessary based on monitoring of

prothrombin times. It is important to ascertain the route of exposure

and the quantity of bait exposed to. Prolonged (PT) times may not be

evident until 48h after exposure but are usually prolonged at 24h. PT

times generally reach a maximum at 36-72h after exposure.

Symptoms include anaemia, shortness of breath during exertion,

fatigue, excessive bleeding from minor cuts, nose bleeds and bleeding

from the gums. Life threatening symptoms include complications from

massive gastrointestinal bleeding and intracranial haemorrhage.

Suitable Extinguishing Media:

Not combustible, however, if material is involved in a fire use: Fine

water spray, normal foam, dry agent (carbon dioxide, dry chemical

powder).

Specific hazards arising from

the substance or mixture:

Non- combustible material.

Special protective equipment

and precautions for fire-

fighters:

Fire fighters should wear Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)

and suitable protective clothing to prevent risk of exposure to

TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Acute:

Oral LD50 (rat) =280 mg/kg/bw

Pindone causes a depression in the liver function to activate vitamin K.

This in turn causes a decrease in blood clotting factors (II, VII, IX and X)

causing an antiprothrombin effect (the inability for the blood to clot).

Large single doses can cause acute poisoning. Pindone has a

cumulative effect, causing anticoagulation poisoning with a long latent

period between ingestion and symptoms. Anticoagulant effects may

persist for days or weeks depending on the dose consumed. Patients

with hepatic dysfunction, malnutrition or a bleeding diathesis are at

greater risk.

Ingestion:

Poisonous if swallowed. Symptoms include bleeding from nose, gums,

blood in stool, blood in urine, anaemia, bruising, fatigue and shortness

of breath during exertion.

Eye:

Avoid contact with eyes. No specific data available.

Skin:

Avoid contact with skin. No specific data available.

Inhalation

May be irritating or dangerous if inhaled. Risk minimised due to

product formulation.

Respiratory or skin

sensitisation:

Not a skin sensitiser and not expected to be a respiratory sensitiser.

Germ cell mutagenicity:

Not considered to be a mutagenic hazard.

Carcinogenicity:

Not considered to be a carcinogenic.

Reproductive toxicity:

Not considered to be toxic to reproduction.

STOT-single exposure:

Not expected to cause toxicity to a specific target organ.

STOT-repeated exposure:

Not expected to cause toxicity to a specific target organ.

Aspiration hazard:

Not expected to be an aspiration hazard.
