Rabbit Control

Post  timwardell on 4/28/2010, 6:46 pm

FYI... I recently stumbled on this link with rabbit control ideas from Lowe's.

Another rabbit control idea

Post  ander217 on 4/28/2010, 7:32 pm

Tim, this may gross some people out, but the best rabbit and groundhog control we've found (other than a fence and a beagle) is human urine. My husband couldn't believe it when I asked him to try it a couple of years ago but I had read that it works, and we were getting desperate, so I figured we had little to lose in trying it. He relieved himself about two or three feet from the edge of the garden so there was no danger of contamination, and eventually he was able to make an unbroken circle completely around the perimeter. We had no more rabbit damage until it rained, and then he had to "re-apply" the protection.

Rabbit control

Post  ander217 on 4/30/2010, 7:13 pm

Hmm, I'm starting to wonder about you, Tim. Have you ever noticed an uncanny ability to foretell the future?

You brought this topic up yesterday, and I went out this morning to pick spinach from my row garden. Some critter had been there before me and had eaten every harvest-sized spinach leaf from two rows. Sigh.

So much for a $200 fence and two worthless/priceless half-grown pups. Time to call Dear Husband to do his duty.
