The Badger population in the UK is rising and coupled with the fact that more houses and other buildings are being constructed on their natural territory, badgers are moving further away from their natural habitat and into domestic gardens in their search for food. The main food of the badger is grubs and worms that are found under the surface of lawns but they will also feed on a wide variety of other foods if necessary, such as flower bulbs, fruits and vegetable crops in the garden.

Badgers are nocturnal creatures so may not be seen when they enter gardens until the damage is found during daylight hours. Evidence of badger damage in gardens can be seen in the form of lawns having been dug up whilst these animals have been hunting for their food. Flower bulbs and plants may be strewn about and vegetables or soft fruit may have been disturbed and partly eaten. Being strong animals badgers can break fences in their attempt to enter gardens or they can climb over or dig under fences.

Badgers are protected by law and so the control of badgers is restricted to repelling or deterring them from gardens or land. Please note, this is not allowed by law if their setts or dens [ places where badgers live ] are already established in the garden or on your land. If you have found a badger sett on your property you need to contact your local wildlife rescue centre for advice.
