Rabbits can cause a significant amount of damage through their burrowing and eating of vegetation. They cause serious damage to gardens, golf courses, railway embankments, flood defences and farmland.
We know the distress and economic impact a rabbit infestation can have. We are very experienced rabbit controllers and can offer a professional rabbit control service that will have quick results.
Rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) can have 5 litters per year with an average of 5 young per litter. This breeding rate can soon see numbers of rabbits explode in the right conditions.
It has been estimated that farmers are losing £50 million pounds a year due to rabbit damage to cereal crops. A loss of 1% per rabbit per hectare has been recorded in winter wheat, which has a significant economic impact.
Rabbits live in burrows which are interconnected to form a warren system. In some situations, these can collapse and cause serious damage to roads, embankments and buildings.
It is estimated that the UK population of rabbits is around 40 million with an annual increase of 2%.
