Fact File: Rabbits


  • What to look out for: Droppings, stripped tree trunks, burrows, shoots on plants that have been eaten down to ground level.
  • Why Control Them: Rabbits can quickly become a nuisance as they damage lawns, plants and flowers. Their burrows can also cause subsidence issues as their burrow systems can cause the supporting grounds around them to collapse.
  • How to Control Them: The best treatment depends on the environment, time of year and level of infestation. Shooting is a great maintenance method for rabbit populations once the main issue has been reduced. We can also offer rabbit trapping where traps are placed for a short period of time and rabbits are caught and humanely dispatched.
