Because rabbits are greatly nocturnal, humans rarely
see them feeding and foraging in both wild and landscaped settings
except near dawn or dusk. But their presence is unmistakable. All
too often, the hard-earned results of a homeowners love of gardening
is ruined overnight by rabbits that clip, snip and chew away
ornamental plants and vegetable gardens, despite the application of
rabbit repellents that claim effective protection from foraging,
When not active, rabbits rest in a
depression in the ground called a “form.” Their home range can
extend to as much as 15 acres, which is covered on generally the
same trails every day. All of life’s needs are found along their
daily trails. Even when running from danger a rabbit will usually
stay on its trail, which generally loops around in a wide circle.
Rabbits leave signs of their presence. They include
prints and scat (droppings). Rabbit scat
changes depending on what the animals have been
eating. Usually, they are dark pellets the
size of peas, and they are sometimes found in
presence of rabbits in manmade landscapes is
also characterized by damage to garden plants,
ornamental flowers and shrubs.
Rabbit browsing can be distinguished from deer
browsing by the
appearance of gnawed older woody growth and
clean-cut clippings of young stems.
A rabbit will leave a clean, angled cut while a
deer will leave a rough, jagged cut. Browsing and
debarking by rabbits usually does not extend more
than 2 1/2 feet above the ground or snow line.
The presence of rabbits does not always result in
damage to personal property. Before implementing a
control and repellent program, correctly identify
the species that caused the damage and compare the
time and costs of controls and repellents to the expected level of damage
and economic returns. People, whose gardens and
landscapes have suffered damage from foraging
rabbits, have tried
numerous types of physical repellants -- scarecrows, owl and snake effigies, pinwheels, pie
pans spinning in the wind and several other
creative devices -- to frighten rabbits out of
gardens and other areas.
Certainly, frightening devices are simple to use,
but they cannot be relied on to protect plants
from damage because rabbits acclimate very quickly
to noise and movement. Excluding rabbits from
valuable plants is a long-term solution to costly
damage and relatively easy to enforce. A fence of
1-inch mesh chicken wire will keep all rabbits out
of a garden or flowerbed. But where rabbits are
found, so too are deer a frequent visitor.
it comes to accessing urban food-scapes,
rabbits are, perhaps, more likely than deer to
approach homes and manmade landscapes, and are
likely to feed on valuable shrubs, trees,
vegetables and ornamental flowerbeds. At first
glance, rabbit foraging seems like it would be
less damaging than the browsing of deer. And while
rabbits are frequently lone feeders, over time
several feeding rabbits can inflict heavy foraging
damage on the plants they
a result, rabbit deterrents and repellants range wide across the
horizon of the imagination. Numerous offensive
products – both professionally and personally
cooked up to protect ornamental shrubs, trees,
flowerbeds and vegetable gardens – are made to
attack their taste buds and their noses. Many
of these repellants temporarily turn rabbits away, but their
cleverness eventually results in failed remedies.
Fencing, too, is often tried to prevent rabbits
from getting into gardens, and, it is, indeed, a
great solution. Rabbit fencing is often attractive
and need not be over 2 to 3 feet tall (unlike
obtrusive deer fencing). But rabbits readily dig
under fencing unless it's extended below the
surface ... as much as 12

rabbits repellents must instill rabbits with the fear of
physical harm, which almost always naturally
occurs with predators. Indeed, it is only the fear
of death that effectively breaks their behavior,

done by taking advantage of their sense of smell
