Look for areas where pasture and vegetation are grazed by rabbits, often within 25 metres of a warren. Also search for scratchings, fresh diggings and dung to locate where rabbits are living.
Locate feeding areas/grazing damage
PROS AND CONS
Locating these areas identifies where it is most effective to place baits for maximum uptake. However, it is not always obvious when feed is plentiful.

Cultural Heritage Awareness
Landholders must be careful to avoid further damage to the environment (including waterways) and Aboriginal cultural heritage sites when using machinery. Be aware of your legal obligations and obtain the necessary permits. Aboriginal Cultural Heritage may be found during works at any time, at any place. If suspected heritage is discovered, work is to cease and a Preliminary Report Form must be completed and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unsure, seek advice from Agriculture Victoria, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, First Peoples – State Relations (formerly Aboriginal Victoria) or your local council.
