Vermtek deliver a full range of deer management solutions, from deer proofing to herd management.We deliver deer management to estates and farms across Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire with our in-house team. Outside of this area we work with a network of fully qualified, insured and experienced sub-contractors.
We regularly operate on estates and land open to the public, we have a range of control methods in place to carry out any management not only safely but in a manor that protects our customers reputations. When managing deer, it is important to remember that they are not seen as pests/problem animals by everyone. we work closely with local stakeholders to ensure that any culling is carried out in a sensitive way and education is available to anyone who asks.
Did you know: Fallow deer are originally from Asia and were introduced by the Normans in the 11th Century
Alongside heard management, we work with landowners to deliver proofing and deterrent solutions to protect arable and timber crops from deer damage.
Deer cause damage through browsing and bark damage when they rub the velvet off their antlers. There are several ways to protect young tree stocks including:
Chinese Water Deer will live for up to 6 years, Roe deer for around 7 years, Muntjac for up to 10 years, Fallow for up to 16 and Red deer up to 18 year
Urban Deer populations are increasing, as the ever growing number of houses built encroach on their habitat, it is now not uncommon to see several of the deer species in suburbs. the species best adapted to living alongside humans is the Muntjac deer. These small deer will eat a range of garden plants but particularly enjoy eating Tulips and Roses!
