rabbit control and removal

The rabbit, though vastly widespread around the UK in large numbers, is not a native species to the British Isle’s.

Information

Rabbit (Oryctolagus Cuniculus)

They are a communal species living within a warren consisting of an intricate and complex system of burrows, often with entrances hidden in dense vegetation.  

Their incredible digging ability can cause serious problems for people and animals alike with the possibility of horses and livestock breaking legs falling into rabbit holes.

As a grazing animal, rabbits can cause major damage to sprouting crops and well kept lawns and the like, with large populations known to entirely remove grass areas.
