Rabbits do cause major damage to crops, businesses and infrastructure these are just a few of the rabbit problems that affect businesses especially on golf courses, farms, smallholdings and homes, however we have experienced them in prisons, factory grounds airports and power stations. They have voracious appetites and vigorous breeding habits. They are able to breed from approximately 4 months of age and produce 4-5 litters of approximately 5 to 8 young each year, looking at these statistics it’s easy to see how a rabbit population can explode out of control and leave behind a trail of destruction.
What’s the solution?
We employ a number of methods for rabbit control such as long netting, ferreting, trapping or gassing amongst others. MBC technicians will often select a combination of methods available to control and manage the rabbit problem and provide the right solution however bad the situation may seem. During treatment we take care to ensure that our rabbit control methods don’t impact on the environment or other wildlife and prefer to use natural methods whenever possible.
