General Facts

Why do I have rabbits?

The most common rabbits in Canada are Eastern cottontails, White-tailed jackrabbits, Arctic hares, Mountain cottontails, and Snowshoe hares. They like to live in fields, swamps, and woodlands, with lots of groundcover for hiding or burrowing. However, on the quest for food and shelter, rabbits often make their way to residential areas and are commonly found in parks, gardens, golf courses, and other green spaces. As herbivores, rabbits eat grasses, clover, herbs, lettuce, peats, dandelions, sapling leaves, and the bark, twigs, stems, and buds of birch, oak, maple, and dogwood trees. Farms and lawns can be particularly attractive.

How worried should I be about rabbits?

Rabbits can ransack gardens and farms, nibbling on crops meant for human consumption and destroying expensive landscaping and plastic irrigation lines. Handling sick or injured rabbits can also lead to the transmission of rabbit fever. However, rabbits are prolific breeders, with females producing litters of up to 14 offspring up to five times a year. It's crucial to get the help of a professional pest control service as early as possible so your rabbit infestation can be eliminated quickly and for good.
