We’ve talked about getting rid of rodents from your farm before, but other farm pests can also destroy livestock and crops.
Moles, rabbits can cause significant damage to agricultural land. Mole hill soil can spoil silage and rabbits rapidly eat crops. Their burrow systems can also damage embankments and trees.
Deers are also a common agricultural pest, eating large amounts of fruits and berries in autumn, as well as stripping the bark from trees.
We have over 25 years’ experience of getting rid of moles. We recommend taking action as soon as the first mole hill is spotted. Moles move fast and can burrow up to 100 metres of new tunnels each night (they never use the same one twice).
Although mole scaring techniques might work in the short term, the only truly effective way to get rid of moles is to trap and remove them.
If you’ve had a rabbit problem this summer, now is the time to think about getting it sorted. Rabbit control is most effective after the breeding season is over, with more options, including ferreting and long nets, for reducing the population.
Deer can cause significant amounts of damage to crops and trees if left unmanaged. There are a number of deer control methods that can be implemented, including fencing, repellents and protection around plants and crops that deer are attracted to.
