Rabbit Control Services for Organisations throughout Kent and the South East

Rabbits can be important in maintaining plant diversity in a range of habitats, but they can also cause significant damage. Garden plants, lawns, trees and crops can all be subject to significant damage from rabbits.

All occupiers have statutory obligations regarding wild rabbits that are harbouring on their land.

An Order under Section One of the Pests Act 1954  declares England and Wales (except for the City of London, the Isles of Scilly and Skokholm Island) a Rabbit Clearance Area. In this area, every occupier of land is responsible for controlling wild rabbits on his/her land or for taking steps to prevent them causing damage. This is a continuing obligation.

Rabbit populations can withstand high mortality from natural causes, and complete eradication is impractical. The aim should be to reduce rabbit numbers to levels at which damage is economically acceptable.

Various methods of control are available including gassing, shooting, trapping, fencing, scaring and repellants. Some of these methods may need to be used in conjunction with each other to improve effectiveness of control.

Initially a survey will be required to determine the most appropriate and cost effective programme for control.
