Introduction

The Black Mountain Farm is an organic farm located in Oregon, USA, which mainly grows vegetables, fruits and herbs, and also raises sheep, chickens and ducks. The farm not only provides high-quality agricultural products, but also is committed to protecting the environment and promoting community development. However, the farm also faces some challenges, one of which is the damage of rabbits and other animals. Rabbits and other animals will destroy the crops of the farm, spread diseases, affect the ecological balance, and bring economic losses and security risks to the farm. This article aims to analyze the damage of rabbits and other animals to the Black Mountain Farm, and propose some prevention and control suggestions. The article will be divided into three parts: the first part introduces the damage of rabbits to the farm; the second part introduces the damage of other animals to the farm; the third part proposes prevention and control suggestions.

The damage of rabbits to the farm

Rabbits are widely distributed animals in the United States, which can be divided into several species according to different geographical regions and ecological environments, such as eastern cottontail, brush rabbit, plateau rabbit, etc. Rabbits usually feed on plants, like to eat tender grass, leaves, flowers, fruits, etc. Therefore, rabbits cause serious damage to the crops of the farm.

First of all, rabbits will eat the vegetables, fruits and herbs of the farm, resulting in a decline in the yield and quality of the farm. Rabbits will not only eat the crops that have been planted by the farm, but also destroy the seeds and seedlings of the crops that will be planted by the farm in the future. It is estimated that rabbits cause economic losses of up to 1 billion US dollars every year in the United States. For example, the Black Mountain Farm once lost nearly 30% of its vegetable production in a year due to rabbit damage.

Secondly, rabbits will dig holes and destroy soil structure, affecting soil and water conservation and irrigation system of the farm. Rabbits will dig many holes and passages on the ground in order to avoid predators and find food. These holes and passages will destroy soil layers and stability, increasing the risk of soil erosion. At the same time, these holes and passages will also interfere with irrigation system of the farm, causing waste or shortage of water resources.

Finally, rabbits will affect ecological balance of the farm, destroy natural beauty and diversity of the farm. Rabbits have strong reproductive ability and rapid population growth, occupying most of living space and resources of the farm. This will lead to reduction or disappearance of other animal populations, breaking ecological chain of the farm. In addition, rabbits will also bite or pull-out flowers, grasses and trees of the farm, destroying natural landscape and aesthetics of the farm.

 

Other animals that harm the farm

In addition to wild rabbits, there are some other animals that harm the Black Mountain Farm in the United States, such as rats, foxes, raccoons, etc. These animals not only steal or damage agricultural products, but also spread zoonotic diseases, threatening the safety of farm workers and animals.

First of all, rats are a common farm pest, they eat the farm’s seeds, grains, fruits, etc., causing economic losses to the farm. Rats also bite the farm’s equipment, pipes, wires, etc., affecting the operation and maintenance of the farm. It is estimated that rats cause economic losses of up to 2 billion US dollars to the United States every year. For example, the Black Mountain Farm once suffered a loss of nearly 10% of its grain output in a year due to rat damage.

Secondly, foxes and raccoons are some common carnivorous animals, they attack the farm’s sheep, chickens, ducks, etc., causing death or injury to the farm’s animals. Foxes and raccoons also spread some dangerous diseases, such as rabies, toxoplasmosis, etc., endangering the health of farm workers and animals. It is estimated that foxes and raccoons cause economic losses of up to 500 million US dollars to the United States every year. For example, the Black Mountain Farm once suffered a loss of nearly 20% of its sheep and chickens in a year due to fox and raccoon damage.

Finally, in addition to the above-mentioned animals, there are some other animals that harm the farm, such as deer, squirrels, birds, etc. These animals eat or contaminate the farm’s crops and water sources, or compete or conflict with the farm’s animals. These animals also affect the ecological balance and diversity of the farm, interfering with the normal management and operation of the farm.

Prevention and control suggestions in order to reduce the harm of wild rabbits and other animals to the Black Mountain Farm in the United States, we need to take some effective prevention and control measures. These measures should comply with laws and regulations and ecological principles, not damage the living environment and habitat of wild animals, and maintain harmony between humans and nature. Here are some specific prevention and control suggestions:

Firstly, set up fences, warning devices, traps, etc., to prevent or reduce wild rabbits and other animals from entering the farm. Fences can be electric nets, wire meshes, wooden fences, etc., with appropriate height and density to prevent animals from jumping over or drilling through. Warning devices can be sound, light, smell, etc., to scare or drive away animals. Traps can be cages, clamps, nets, etc., to capture or kill animals. These facilities should be checked and maintained regularly to ensure their effectiveness and safety.

Secondly, scientifically and reasonably hunt excess animal populations, control the number and distribution of wild rabbits and other animals. Hunting should comply with relevant laws and regulations and permit requirements, not kill indiscriminately or destroy ecological balance. Hunting should choose suitable time, place and method, avoid causing interference or harm to the normal operation of the farm. In order to improve the efficiency and safety of hunting, you can use WildGuarder Owler1 night vision binoculars to find targets in the dark and record the hunting process and results.

Finally, change the planting structure and crop rotation, reduce the attractiveness and dependence of rabbits and other animals on the farm. The planting structure should be diversified and balanced, avoiding monotonization or concentration. Crop rotation should be arranged reasonably, avoiding long-term planting of the same crop. Some crops or plants that have a repellent effect on rabbits and other animals can be selected, such as peppers, garlic, onions, etc. Some crops or plants that are attractive to rabbits and other animals can also be planted around the farm, such as carrots, alfalfa, etc., to disperse or divert their attention.
