Rabbits destroying bushes

Recommended Posts

The rabbits are just demolishing my bushes, by eating them. Regular old rabbit trail right to all my bushes. Is there anything i can do to prevent this??? I bought a spray bottle of some stuff that is suppose to keep them away but it does not work. Any Home remedies???

Use the spray and respray after the rain. Leave traps out and use a pellet gun if you want. I also look for their nests in the early spring and whack the babies to death when I find them.

I have used cuyenne(sp?)pepper before when I had them eating up my Hostas in the spring. I just shook some around the base of the plants and it did keep the bunnies away.

I used some stuff called rabbit repel and it worked but every time there was any moisture I needed to redo it. I would have shot them but my neighbor wouldnt have went for that program.

I had used mothballs a couple years back and worked great, but

my residents complaints about the smell had me picking them

all back up. Snowbank along the sidewalk to my entry door was

pretty high last year and they about totally ate the shrub

burried under the snow. Had I known they were at work under

there I would put mothballs under all of them to.

They dig holes right out in the open on the lawn out front

and make nests out there. Its a mess sometimes while mowing

when a puff of bloody fur shoots out. They disguise the holes

really good to. Break a foot if you don`t find them.

I'd use a two pronged approach, both mentioned before:

Pellet gun or .22 loaded with CB Caps

Cayenne Pepper (buy a large container of it from the spices section of your grocery) sprinkled liberally on the leaves every other day or so

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?

    • vtx,   Thanks for the suggestion.
    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
