How to get rid of rabbits

Post by yousha » Sat Sep 22, 2018 8:35 pm

I've had a great deal of difficulty keeping rabbits away from my landscape. The Yard looks terrible as a result. Any thoughts about what to use to keep these rabbits away.

These are very effective if you position them well.....

We lived on a golf course the first time I used them and they were effective against golfers searching for balls in my planting beds as well. :D

It's cruel as well. Most animals are territorial, and dumping an animal in the middle of another's territory is going to lead to fights generally to the death.

I have rabbits in my yard. They have no noticeable effect on the yard except I see them occasionally eating violets. I fail to see what the problem is.

What part of the country....?

Where I live, PNW, we simply enjoy them. We have never done anything to discourage them... and their affect on our yard is minuscule. They eat clover around our place, and some of the weeds it seems.

There is a population explosion of "rabbits" (I believe they are some kind of hybrid cottontail hare) in Arlington Virginia and they are very destructive to many plants and vegetables,they have essentially destroyed what used to be a nice collection of Spring and Fall blooming Crocus over a few years-the first year the plant is defoliated,there will be leaves but no bloom the next season,after a couple years or three of defoliations the rootstock dies completely
The only way to deal with them would be to enclose the area with fine mesh fencing that is dug at least a couple inches into the ground and/or keep a rat terrier or Jack Russell on the premises (perhaps a nice Russian Blue Cat?) they laugh at deer repellent
people used to shoot them and I suspect poison was used in the past
behavior is different than hares or rabbits in wild areas,they only move out of your reach if you approach them most of the time.
Foxes seem to appear in the area from time to time but don't seem to survive very well
in a few cases I suspect girdling of young trees was done by the hares,also they will attack rose canes sometimes. Cut ends of woody growth almost looks like it was done with a blade

We used to have a lot of squirrels and white-winged doves. But the Cooper's hawks figured that out and raised bigger families. Now with several nesting pairs in the area, it seems that things are more in balance.

So my advice would be to not worry about the rabbits. They will get taken care of eventually.

I do wonder what rabbits have done to make the yard look terrible. Got any pictures?

There are rodent repellent sprays that are supposed to work. The one I bought to repel chipmunks from nesting under the hood of my pickup smelled like peppermint. Of course these only work for specific spots you spray and maybe they don't work at all.

As a child, my father occasionally woke me so I could cover my ears, as he shot rabbits in our garden (or shot at them, at least) with a .22 rifle. My bedroom had the best line of sight. He grew up on a farm. But the thing is - we lived in a suburban neighborhood, and it took a bit for mom to convince him how the neighbors might not appreciate his particular approach to the issue.

Same here - great for the lawn as they go around eating weeds but not lawn - although if they dig holes and nest in a garden it can be a bit of mess.
Unfortunately I have dogs and every once in a while they get one (or wipe out a litter - wish they would always nest outside the yard). The raabbits have dug small escape holes under parts of the fencing in a couple of places and can usually outrun / escape (it's the young ones every spring that sadly don't always make it).
OP- you could get a dog (or a shotgun).

My grandfather heard that mothballs worked as a repellent only to look out at the garden one morning to see a rabbit rolling the mothball around with his nose as if playing marbles. After that, being a soft hearted fellow, he simply planted a little extra.

Rabbits are 4x luckier then any of us, they have 4 rabbits feet.

I have similar rabbit issue. They ate some tulips I planted....the leaves and flowers. Got to the point where I had to dig up all the tulips and toss them. Kinda a waste of a flower.
Didn't want a gaudy fence around my planting areas, hassle and ugly.

I've tried both powder and spray rabbit repellents with little success. They are relatively expensive if you are covering a large space, need to be reapplied, and in my case didn't work very well. This year a red-shouldered hawk moved into the neighborhood and dramatically reduced my rabbit issues.

If you're going to trap them, why release them? Just eat 'em. Would you trap a chicken and relocate it?

I would try to find a falconer. I don't think a visiting hawk would control a population, but they're fascinating birds to watch. It would be great fun.

DW and I were both out "mowing" (tractor and large zero turn) our acreage yesterday. Hit 2 baby rabbits. Felt awful. We look out for them but sometimes they are very hard to see. I have a stack of railroad ties that is the annual breeding ground for new generations of rabbits. They all leave the property after growing up. It's an interesting cycle of nature. Like barn swallows. :D
Actionably: folks with gardens surround them with mesh fencing to keep critters out.

While this won't work in all planting area--- for many years we put short fence around our multiple large gardens(600 sq ft and more). On the outside of the gardens we repeatedly planted bean/ lettuce/flower seeds. Didn't care if the seeds didn't develop flowers/veggies etc-- they were there for the rabbits to eat. We also had a couple of the plots planted in oats or clover each year to prep for the future.

This was on our 9 acre property with a township park, along our woods area, so perfect critter habitat.

Often if you can't beat'em---join'em.

I figure that unless you're a vegetarian, you've got no moral argument to argue against hunting/eating wild game. Seems far more ethical to allow animals to live a full life in their natural environment before a few seconds of pain than to put them in pens/cages for their entire life before slaughtering/eating them.

I would shoot them but not with lead bullets. I have a squirrel problem and use a pellet gun to control the population. I switched to copper pellets after I read that birds of prey often die from lead poisoning. I would definitely eat them (but I leave the squirrels in the yard and they are always gone the next morning.)

Sometimes noise scares them away - and sometimes not.

We had a lot of bunnies all over last year - and then a fox moved into the neighborhood. No more bunnies.

So are moose. I eat those too.
Bullwinkle?
:shock:
I figure that unless you're a vegetarian, you've got no moral argument to argue against hunting/eating wild game. Seems far more ethical to allow animals to live a full life in their natural environment before a few seconds of pain than to put them in pens/cages for their entire life before slaughtering/eating them.

Agree.
All in humor. . . :wink:
Lot's of hunters in our senior crowd (not me as I can't walk far and hunt). Moose does taste a bit like Elk.
But, being a bit "goofy", it's difficult for me to not assign Disney characters to animals.
Peter, Rocky, Bullwinkle, Pepe' Le' Piew". . .
You eat Pepe' ? :shock: :shock: :shock:
Eggads. No.
Phew!!!!!
