Rabbits – Decreasing Your Local Population

Q: How can we relocate rabbits that are in our neighborhood? They have eaten all our pretty flowers and many of our vegetables.

A: You have some choices to make. I have little confidence in rabbit repellent products. In my experience, trapping doesn’t work in summer. As a kid I trapped rabbits but it was always in a covered trap in winter. Exclusion from beds with a low chicken wire fence is effective but not very attractive. On the other hand, if your neighborhood coyote population expands, Nature will take care of the excess rabbits for you.
