Signs of a Rabbit Infestation
Rabbits love landscaped gardens with lots of shrubs and vegetation around for them to nibble on; making your garden target number one. It’s rare that wild rabbits will try to enter properties, so you’ll most likely find signs of their presence in your outdoor areas. Due to their fast reproduction rates, one or two rabbits in your garden can very quickly turn into an infestation that requires urgent attention. Here are the most common signs of a rabbit infestation that you can look out for:
Plant Damage – Rabbits have an insatiable appetite and, if left to their own devices, will happily eat their way through your garden over the space of days or weeks. Whilst they’re not the only pests that could be eating your greenery, rabbits cause cleanly cut damage to leaves, stems and flowers. Insects and other garden pests will leave behind jagged edges or teeth marks; making clean-cut damage a telltale sign of rabbits.
Digging – As animals known for living underground in warrens and burrows, it should come as no surprise that rabbits will dig in your garden! Look out for signs of digging, i.e piles of dirt and holes, in your flower beds, around shrubs and even in your grass.
Droppings – Just like all pests, one of the most obvious signs of their presence is the droppings they leave behind. Rabbit droppings are typically very small, roughly the size of a pea, and most commonly black or light brown in colour. Look out for these among flowerbeds and any areas you’ve noticed damage occurring.
Fur – Another common sign of a rabbit infestation is fur. As they go about their day rabbits malt and leave behind small tufts of fur, so look out for these around your garden – particularly on or around plants.
Rabbit Control & The Law
Did you know that rabbits are estimated to cause losses of over £260 million each year by damaging crops and infrastructure?
Due to the extent of the damage they cause, the Pest Act 1954 made property/landowners responsible for controlling the number of wild rabbits on their property. The law states you must control rabbits on your land, and if this is not possible, you must stop them from causing damage to adjoining land by utilising proofing measures. Failure to obey these laws could land you with a hefty fine or even prosecution!
Commercial Rabbit Control London
It’s not just domestic households that suffer from rabbit infestations. If your London-based commercial premises has outdoor, green spaces then you too may be at risk of a rabbit infestation. Due to the viruses they carry and the damage they cause, rabbits can seriously damage the reputation of your business and place your employees and customers at risk.
If you’ve noticed any of the above signs of rabbit infestations on your commercial property, it’s important to leave it to the professionals. Call us today on 0208 914 7894 for a free quote for rabbit removal or proofing services.
