Covering some of the more rural areas around the united Kingdom, Prokill is often called in to remove rabbits. Whether they are destroying agricultural crops, building their warrens on school grounds or spoiling a garden, rabbits have to be controlled; it’s a legal requirement, in fact.
Prevention of Damage by Rabbits Act 1939: Rabbits are one of the major wildlife pests in the UK, causing annual losses estimated to more than £100 million. It may be their cute appearance that tricks people into underestimating the destructive capabilities of these mammals. They affect farms and agricultural fields, forests, orchards, sports fields and public and industrial areas.
And it is not just their prolific breeding and capabilities to chew and dig through most landscapes, but also the diseases and viruses they spread to other animals and humans that are reasons of concern.
Wild rabbits are gregarious animals beginning their activity from dawn to dusk. They will also come out during daytime if they don’t perceive any threats in their environment. The rabbits’ main source of food consists of grass and leafy plants, but they will feed on bulbs and twigs when there is not enough food available.
