Why Rabbit Control is Necessary
It’s estimated that wild rabbits cause well upwards of Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK every year. Indeed some estimations put the number nearer to Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 100 million and at times there is no choice but to control them either through exclusion or extermination methods.
Rabbit populations can also fall victim to disease. The best known of these is myxomatosis, which is carried from rabbit to rabbit by fleas. In severe cases the rabbits become blind, lose body weight and experience a slow death, although there is evidence that populations are developing a degree of resistance to this disease, which was introduced to the population by man in the 1950s.
Less well known is the virus VHD, which is transferred by contact and can also be airborne. This causes blood to become visible from the rabbit’s orifices, and the creatures normally die within 48 hours. Due to the fact that the rabbit is a community animal, diseases can spread very quickly and swift action may be required simply on animal welfare grounds.

Rabbit proof fencing has an important role to play, but must be erected by someone experienced in doing so and who knows what makes an effective rabbit fence, and what makes an ineffective one. There are a number of alternatives in terms of trapping, which one of our pest controllers can advise you on.
