OK, everything we've planted this year has bee consumed by these stinkin' rabbits. How do I get rid of them without poison? If I trap them, are they OK to eat?

Great to eat, but there is a season on them....

I trap and relocate before I lose my garden. Or wait until fall and get meat out of my garden instead of vegetables.

Fungicides that contain the chemical Thiram are an excellent form of non-lethal rabbit repellent and control.

Or

The only tried and tested, successful way to keep rabbits out is to put up a fence. It should be at least 3 feet high and buried 6-8 inches into the ground to stop them digging underneath.

Best of Luck!

We have a small garden plot at our house, probably 8'x16'. The sides of it are 2 railroad ties high, the back is a 6' fence, and the front is 1 railroad tie high. We always plant marigolds near the front of the garden and have never, ever had

a problem w/ those pesky cottontails. Now chipmunks on the other hand get a little bit of peanut butter on a rat trap! laugh

When do you harvest marigolds and how do you fix 'em?

Just kidding.

Seriously, are you saying marigolds are an effective rabbit repellent?

They've worked for us. They last pretty much all summer too with a little water and picking off the dead flowers. I save that job for my daughter, as I can't stand the smell of those things!!! LOL

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
