Wildlife Management

wildlife-page1Absolute Pest Control Ltd not only remove common pest species such as rats, mice, cockroaches, ants etc but we also offer control of wildlife such as:

  • Foxes
  • Moles
  • Squirrels
  • Deer and wild boar
  • Rabbits

Absolute Pest Control Ltd offers Rabbit Control and other Wildlife management services such as Squirrel Control to industrial, commercial and domestic properties as well as farms and agricultural land. Absolute Pest Control Ltd will use non-toxic methods such as ferreting with the use of purse nets and long nets, trapping and culling.

Drop boxes can be manufactured and set within fence lines that regularly allow rabbits access. We can tailor a trapping programme to your needs. All rabbits that are removed from the traps or dispatched via ferrets or culling are taken to Howletts zoo and donated as animal food for the small cats. Rabbit-proof fences also can be installed.

Culling is also carried out by our fully trained marksmen. Training and gun servicing is carried out by FT&CG Services (www.ftandcg.com ). The use of air weapons along with shotgun and rimfire rifles allow us to use the correct weapon for each job.

Absolute Pest Control Ltd is fully licensed, insured and trained in the application of Phosphine gas into rabbit burrows, mole tunnels and rat burrows. This is, however, the last option as it is totally indiscriminating and will kill nontarget species.

Rabbits Oryctolagus cuniculus

Rabbits have been a source of environmental problems when introduced into the wild by humans. As a result of their appetites, and the rate at which they breed.

Rabbits have a very rapid reproductive rate. The breeding season for most rabbits lasts 9 months, from February to October. Normal gestation is about 30 days. The average size of the litter varies but is usually between 4 and 12 babies, with larger breeds having larger litters. A kit (baby rabbit) can be weaned at about 4 to 5 weeks of age. This means that a single female rabbit can produce as many as 800 children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren in one season.
