Entry & Detection Though they prefer to nest in grassy fields, rabbits can be found burrowing under structures from time to time. The pests typically choose their nesting sites based on the availability of food. Since they eat a variety of flowers, vegetables, and ornamental plants, rabbits may construct their dens under decks or the foundations of homes in yards where these foods are nearby. They also seek refuge under structures when trying to escape predators. Control & Removal Most rabbit damage occurs to plants and gardens. Nevertheless, rabbits under the deck, shed, or house should be dealt with immediately by the wildlife removal professionals at Critter Control. As rabbits carry parasites and can transmit diseases, inexperienced individuals should never try to handle or capture the pests. Always leave rabbit removal to a trained pest control specialist.
