Rabbits

Strathearn Pest Control can eliminate your rabbit problems.

Rabbit – Oryctolagus cuniculus

History

Rabbits tend to inhabit grasslands and heaths, woodland and open areas such as sand dunes. They are common in parks, on golf courses and railway embankments, and in gardens where they burrow under trees and sheds. Rabbits breed from January through to August, with 2 – 4 breeds per annum, 3 – 6 young per litter. After breeding, the young will live up to four kilometres away.

Why Control Rabbits ?

  • Rabbit damage is a major economic problem for British agriculture, costing the industry an estimated £ 100 million by destroying crops and grazing. It’s not just farmers who suffer :
  • Bark may be gnawed from the base of tree trunks when other vegetation isn’t available
  • Lawns and flower beds can be ruined by the digging and scraping of holes
  • Golf courses suffer as holes are dug and the grass is killed by the acidic droppings
  • Gardens are destroyed as flowers and bulbs and young trees are destroyed

Methods of Control

  • Controlling rabbits takes two forms : exclusion or eradication
  • For exclusion we use rabbit-proof fencing
  • Eradication is usually via gassing, trapping or shooting
  • After rabbits have been displaced we would always recommend rabbit-proofing to prevent any further infestation
