Why Rabbit Control is Often Required
It’s estimated that wild rabbits cause well in excess of Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK every year. Indeed some estimates 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 end up being blind, lose body weight and suffer a slow death, although there is evidence that populations are developing a level of immunity 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 be 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 rapidly and swift action can be necessary simply on animal welfare grounds.

Rabbit proof fencing has an essential 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 options in terms of trapping, which one of our pest controllers can advise you on.
