Although they may appear cute and fluffy from a distance, rabbits can actually morph into ravenous, horrifying monsters for any gardener or lawn keeper. They are known as one of the more plant-destructive members of the rodent family, consuming any edible plants they come across. In addition, a rabbit may choose to dig a burrow for a home in an unfortunate gardener’s soil, ruining the roots of vegetables and other plants and harming any plants that have been affected by the digging. Overall, rabbits are deceiving creatures with incessant appetites that can lead to the doom of a well-kept garden or plot of land. In order to protect the hard work of farmers, gardeners, and lawn keepers, Pest Mall provides several different pest control products that will effectively control or exterminate these adorable but pesky rodents.>> Read More
Rabbits are characterized by their large, long ears and their cotton-like tails (though not all species have tails like this). They mainly inhabit grassy areas such as meadows and woods, but some species can handle inhabiting the harsh, dry weather of deserts. As social rodents, they live together in groups that range in size between species; the European rabbit, in particular, digs burrows underground and forms colonies through these burrows. America actually encompasses more than half of the world’s total rabbit population, which can be a positive or negative aspect. Rabbits are herbivores and therefore only consume plants and other leafy greens. Consequently, they are capable of overwhelming and stripping clean an entire garden or crop field, if their numbers are large enough.
Along with being voracious eaters, rabbits are also extremely fast reproducers. If an environment is comfortable enough for a few rabbits, they may reproduce at a rapid pace, escalating a small, minor problem to a huge, difficult-to-control one. Due to their rapid reproduction rates, homeowners need to remove any rabbits they see as soon as possible if the rabbits stay for longer than a few hours. These long-eared rodents will graze ravenously for the first hour and more selectively for the subsequent hours. They also produce two different kinds of feces, a soft one made of organic matter and a hard pellet one. While they ingest the soft feces, rabbits do not touch the hard pellet feces, which, in adequate amounts, can become a disgusting and pathogenic mess.
One of the best rabbit control methods is simply to prevent the infestation from ever happening. Pest Mall offers a repellent that a homeowner or business owner can apply around the parameters of his/her home to ward off rabbits from entering the treated area. We also provide different sizes of humane traps that one can simply place bait in and set up in a relatively high traffic location to trap any wandering rabbits. Before setting up a live trap and releasing a caught rabbit, please check with the local department of wildlife to verify that no laws are being broken or violated. When dealing with any species of rabbit other than the cotton tail (which does not burrow for shelter), one may choose to use the Giant Destroyer gas bomb to kill the pests underground. The gas bomb can simply be placed at the entrance of a burrow after all possible exits are closed and then covered when ignited to kill off any unsuspecting rabbits that are inhabiting the burrows.
