Originating in Eastern Asia, rabbits were introduced to the UK in the 11th century by the Normans who used them for food and fur. In those days they were a valuable commodity but today they are widely regarded as a pest – especially by gardeners. Dealing with a rabbit problem is important for your home and family as they breed rapidly and can be extremely destructive.

They graze happily on lawns, young plants and seedlings, consuming around 0.5kg of food each day. In winter, when food is more scarce, they will eat tree bark, usually preferring the smooth bark on young trees. In garden borders, plant roots are also vulnerable and sometimes the edges of perennial plants are excavated for a meal. In the vegetable plot, carrots are a favourite, (it’s not just a myth), and they will burrow down into potato drills to reach the tubers.

As well as causing damage to lawns and plants by eating and scratching, rabbits carry fleas and can transmit diseases to domestic rabbits. Once a warren is established, rabbits are very persistent, re-digging even if it is filled in. In the right conditions, they can establish large underground warrens going down about 3 metres in sandy soil, often supporting about 100 rabbits. The breeding season for most rabbits lasts 9 months, from February to October. The average size of the litter varies but is usually between 4 and 12 babies. In just one season a single female rabbit can produce as many as 800 children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Rabbits were formerly classified as rodents until 1912 and damage caused by rabbits is estimated at £100 million per annum across the UK.
