Although many rabbits are kept domestically as pets, there are still many in the wild that can ruin your gardens or commercial premises. These are still considered to be a pest
Description: Rabbits are covered in fur with long ears, large eyes, and short, fluffy tails.
Habitat: Rabbits have no set habitat. They can live in a variety of environments but mainly grasslands. Many rabbits will move into a burrow dug by another animal.
Diet: Rabbits are mainly herbivores that eat a wide range of plants including grasses or their roots.
Lifecycle: Most live around a year, with some reaching up to 3 years.
Harmful Health effects
Some studies show that rabbits contain a bacteria, Pasteurella Multocida, in their mouth and nasal passages.
They also excereet around 100 pellets a day which can be unfavourable and unsanitary.
For a rabbit control programme to be successful, an integrated approach is vital. Shooting, baiting or fumigating without any follow-up will leave a vacant ready made home for young migrating rabbits from surrounding areas. Eliminate Pest Control Ltd is able to solve your rabbit problem by a combined approach utilising several control methods for maximum results.
Our methods include:
- Shooting at night, or day.
- Professionally installed rabbit proof fencing.
- Fumigation of Warrens.
Rabbit breeding occurs throughout the year in the UK due to our mild winters. This means that in order to combat a rabbit problem we need to act at a faster rate than the rabbit can breed.
Our aim is to achieve local eradication to your problem and to prevent re-infestation of rabbits. A group approach has far greater success in achieving this goal, and we have found that by dealing with your neighbour’s problem will better the chance of rabbit re-infestation.
