Badgers in your garden?

Updated: Apr 15, 2018

We're getting a lot of calls from homeowners reporting badgers visiting their gardens to feed on the lawn. We appreciate that this might be a bit irritating. However, in most cases this is seasonal. In autumn and spring, badgers are moving around more often and most will move on relatively quickly.

A lot of the calls we receive are requests to move badgers living near houses. More badgers are becoming urbanised with the increase in development. With this, we must live together. We ask that if badgers are causing a little damage in your garden please give it some time. We expect that they will move on fairly quickly. The reason for conflict in these cases is a lack of places for the badgers to feed.
