Rabbits

Rabbits damage plantings, undermine banking’s and the damage ground in paddocks & fields.Rabbit

Upon identifying an infestation,   contact us and we will help/advise with the next step in preparing a eradication program.

The program will consist of :-

  • We would start with a thorough inspection of all known and suspected spots where they might be hiding.
  • We will find the best solution in eradicating the rabbits by the use of ferrets or Gassing .
  • Full site risk assessments will be carried out before and after the job is complete.
  • Offer rabbit proofing fencing. 
  • Scheduling a follow-up visit if required.

 

Gassing458_talunex_tablets

Gassing can reduce a rabbit population by 80% However, due to its toxicity, Aluminium Phosphide cannot be used in certain areas such as within 10 meters of an occupied building and so should only ever be applied by trained, qualified operators using the correct application equipment. Phosphide gas in pellet form is introduced to the warren system, The pellets react with moisture in the soil and emit phosphine gas which sinks into the burrow system. All of our gassing operatives are fully trained to City and Guilds level 2 “Safe use of Aluminium Phosphide for Vertebrate control”.

Ferreting Ferrets-3c

One of the oldest methods of rabbit control but still highly effective. Purse nets are placed over the warrens and ferrets are used to flush the rabbits out, when the rabbits attempt to escape they are held by the net until humanely dispatched. Ferreting is ideal for using in areas where using other methods of control is not safe such as next to roads and footpaths. Ferreting is best carried out between September and May when vegetation and rabbit numbers are low, but we do offer a all year service if required.
