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

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
