Reviews - What do customers think about Rabbit Control?
Mis-named, but still interesting Feb 14, 2005
In spite of its title, this is not a book about rabbit control. Ms Drakeford's approach is that of the country person and unquestionably she has a deep knowledge and evident love of some aspects of country life. If you want to know how to hunt, trap or snare rabbits then this book is for you. If on the other hand you are suffering a plague of rabbits then there is little help to be had here. As someone who has spent more then 30 years in pest control I find her dismissive attitude to serious population control measures rather short-sighted. Australia, where I spent many years, would have a much more serious rabbit problem if it were not for control techniques which she dismisses so disparagingly. The book would more be appropriately titled "Rabbit Harvesting". In its own way this is an excellent book but it is not for anyone who requires serious pest control.
