A number of the ways in which the rabbit population can be controlled are labour intensive and as such it depends on the size of the problem or to be more precise the population of the problem. When it comes to dealing with a vast number of wild rabbits – gassing treatments can be the most effective if carried out during the winter months as their population is low and their holes are easier to locate.

Spotting a Wild Rabbit
Wild Rabbits in the UK appear with brown, grey and sometimes black fur, often considered a medium sized pest they can range from thirty four to fifty centimetres in length and weigh upto two and a half kilograms. They feature long ears, large hind legs, short downy tails and move by hopping
Rabbits are often looked upon as cute and cuddly little creatures. People’s perception of wild rabbits is often clouded and they see them as a form of pet, this is perhaps because they or their children have had one as a pet and they feel an emotional attachment to the pest that has recently appeared in their garden or on their land. Its important to distinguish between a domesticated pet rabbit and a wild pest rabbit, they may look the same but they do two very different things to the land where they are living.
