Rabbits breed in March through September and can have 7 litters per year with 3 to 6 young bunnies. The mother will cover the nest when she leaves and will return once or twice a day to feed. The young are weaned after about three weeks and able to be on their own. Rabbits are most active at dawn and dusk, the average sleep time of a rabbit in captivity is said to be 8.4 hours. As with other prey animals, rabbits often sleep with their eyes open so sudden movements will wake the rabbit and alert it to dangers.
Removing rabbits can be an ongoing process depending on your location. Real estate is just as valuable to wildlife as it is to humans. Depleting food in an area with growing populations causes any animal to migrate. Trapping programs for rabbits usually start at 5 days and can run longer depending on your needs. Within the time period given traps will be checked daily, animals removed and traps reset until the end of term.
The most identifiable damage caused by bunny rabbits comes in the winter time, especially when it gets really cold. Small trees, and bushes like dogwood and sometimes pine trees are stripped of bark for food. The tree or bush will usually die during the spring thaw driving up landscape cost. The groundhog is notorious for doing quite a bit of damage in the garden. Who hasn’t lost a tomato in its prime or noticed gnawed ornamentals in their yard? This time of year, in the dead of winter, the groundhog is not to blame. A fair amount of landscape injury comes from cottontail rabbit which can do extensive damage around your home.
