We specialise in Badger identification and prevention. We also work with ecologists and the licensing authority if needed, to resolve badger problems.
The two main types of badger activity are sett activity and foraging activity. This badger activity can pose a number of serious problems:
Badger consultation survey to establish if legal to prevent or exclude
To understand your problem and to advise further we recommend a site survey be done by us. Through the survey we may identify the simplest solution which we would also guarantee.
We can identify the damage and confirm if it is badgers or foxes which cause similar risks and damage. We can then report on the best solution to exclude badgers and guarantee they will not breach our badger prevention work.
If a sett is identified on site, an additional survey may be required by our ecologist who will then carry out a more detailed survey of the sett’s activity. They will liaise with the licensing authority on your behalf to try to gain permission to carry out the recommended badger control solution.
Due to the complex process it is not guaranteed that it will be possible to carry out the works however a survey is the starting point.

Unlike rodents wild animals do not necessarily need to be destroyed and may even be protected in some cases, very often the best answer is prevention.
