During the last two decades, the deer population in the UK has doubled. There are now thought to be in excess of 1.5 million deer from six different species making their home across the nation.
With the vegetation of the South West being such a popular draw for these creatures, they are thriving and it has been necessary to exercise deer management in Devon and across the UK.
The reasons for such an increase in numbers are:
With such an abundance of deer making themselves at home, they inevitably bring problems. They graze on farmers’ crops, destroy many beautiful gardens and perhaps, even more alarmingly, their semi-urban presence has been the cause of 20 human deaths in road traffic accidents.
Falcon Environmental Services offers an expert deer management service – call us on 01752 929292 to find out more.
The typical deer that you can expect to see around the UK are Roe and Red deer, as well as Fallow, Sika deer, Muntjac and Water deer.
With Devon being home to the perfect grazing habitats of Dartmoor and Exmoor, it is no surprise that there are plenty of these creatures right on our doorstep.
While no one likes to think of deer as a problem, the unfortunate reality is that, just like foxes and other vermin, they are a pest and it is necessary to exercise pest control.
If farmers lose their crops, it can be very costly. In England, the cost of damage to agriculture from deer is reported to be £4.3 million. As the deer hunt for food and grow in numbers they get even closer to semi-urban and even suburban areas. The less timid they become, the more of a threat they pose.
If you think that there might be deer in your area, here are signs to look out for:
Of course, for farmers who are losing crops, it will be important to recognise the signs sooner rather than later. Falcon Environmental Services’ professional pest control service, specialises in deer management in Devon and will be able to determine the cause of the problem.
