RABBITS are common in gardens and in the countryside. They are very agile and can get through most fences as they can CLIMB, JUMP and DIG! They can live either above or below the ground in burrows and eat a huge variety of vegetation.

Given the right conditions rabbits can breed throughout the year having 6 - 8 litters averaging 5 young. The rabbits can breed from at THREE months!

Rabbits and Moles

The MOLE is not often seen by people, although it’s work can be seen in fields and gardens. It is perfectly adapted to burrowing and living underground, and soil excavated by it is pushed up to form MOLEHILLS.

Moles are a pest to farmers because molehills in a field can DAMAGE agricultural machines and stock. They can also drive gardeners MAD!

Numbers of rabbits were so huge in the 1950’s that a virus called Myxomatosis was introduced which decimated the population. Surviving rabbits developed immunity and various weaker strains of the original virus are still present today.

They may be furry and cute but these are the Gardner’s and Farmer’s nightmare.
