Damage Rabbits can do around your property

Rabbits can cause various types of damage around properties in the Okanagan area of British Columbia, Canada. Here are some common concerns related to rabbit activity:

  1. Garden and Landscape Damage: Rabbits are known for their voracious appetite, and they may feed on a variety of plants, including flowers, vegetables, and ornamental shrubs. This can result in significant damage to gardens and landscaping.
  2. Bark Stripping on Trees and Shrubs: In the winter months, rabbits may resort to gnawing on the bark of trees and shrubs. This behavior, known as “bark stripping,” can lead to damage or death of young trees and negatively impact the health of established plants.
  3. Burrowing: Rabbits dig shallow burrows, especially in soft or sandy soils. While these burrows are not as extensive as those of some other animals, they can disrupt lawns and garden beds.
  4. Nesting in Unprotected Areas: Rabbits may choose to nest in unprotected areas, such as under decks or sheds. This can lead to disturbances and potential damage to the structure or foundation.
  5. Crop Damage: In rural or agricultural areas, rabbits can cause damage to crops such as grains, vegetables, and fruits. This can impact agricultural productivity and lead to financial losses for farmers.

To manage rabbit-related concerns, property owners in British Columbia may consider implementing the following measures:

  • Fencing: Install protective fencing around gardens and vulnerable plants to prevent rabbits from accessing and damaging them.
  • Repellents: Use commercial or homemade repellents to deter rabbits from specific areas. These may include natural substances with strong scents that rabbits find unpleasant.
  • Vegetation Selection: Choose plants that are less attractive to rabbits for landscaping, and consider using rabbit-resistant species.
  • Professional Assistance: If rabbit populations become difficult to manage, seeking advice from Critter Catchers who can help advice an effective and humane solutions while adhering to regional regulations.
