Rabbit Control Products
Rabbit Control Products include visual deterants, traps, wire mesh barriers and repellents.
There are many species of rabbits in the US, but the most commonly reported pest is the eastern cottontail.
This species can grow 16” long and can weigh up to 3 pounds. It’s thick fur is reddish brown to gray in color. Long ears, powerful hind legs and cotton-ball tail are the classic features of the cottontail rabbit.
A mating pair of Cottontails can produce 7 litters or 30 to 40 offspring every year. Each young rabbit is ready to breed at 3 to 4 months of age. It is easy to see how populations can get out of control in a very short period of time.
Cottontails seek out habitat on the fringes of open spaces, such as fields, meadows, and farms, but can readily adapt to man-made habitats such as lawns, golf courses, cemeteries and more.

Impact on Human Health:
Rabbit Fact Sheet
Rabbits are susceptible to many diseases that can be transmitted to humans. Examples are Bordetella bronchiseptica and Escherichia coli. Rabbits carry parasites such as fleas, ticks, mites and toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) which causes the disease of toxoplasmosis in nearly all mamals (including humans).
Impact on Agriculture: Most rabbit complaints feature their appetite for the plants in our gardens and lawns. Farmers can lose entire crops to exploding rabbit populations. Other species of rabbits create dangerous holes in yards, lawns and pastures for horses and livestock. A “rabbit-proof” fence was constructed in Western Australia to
stop the advance the hugely overpopulated European rabbits (closely related to cottontails) and the complete destruction of agriculture they caused.
