Rabbits

Rabbit Silhouette

Damage can result from digging and feeding activities. In extreme cases, rabbits can undermine embankments and structures resulting in collapse. Burrows and scrapes damage the surface of high quality amenity grasslands such as golf courses, bowling greens, and cricket pitches.

Rabbits will seriously damage and kill newly planted or even fairly mature shrubs and trees by damaging leading shoots and stripping bark. Damage and loss of crops can have serious financial implications to farmers.

One of the most effective and permanent solutions is to exclude the rabbits from the area by proofing with rabbit proof mesh, posts and straining wires. Electric fencing is useful in agricultural situations to give temporary protection to crops during the vulnerable stages.
