Rabbits

We have problems with rabbits in our flowers. Is there a specific way to repel rabbits? We have heard of using fox or coyote urine, but that would be difficult to obtain. We live in the south, so rabbits are breeding like crazy.

Rabbit Rellent
by: Larry

Rabbit repellent is not something I have ever had to worry about. My area is loaded with coyotes and the rare black bear - and now that I think of it I do not remember seeing even 1 wild rabbit in the past 2 years.

But I have heard of some of the more natural repellents. What is toxic to us is pretty much toxic to rabbits. You mention flowers so if you have any foxglove spread some leaves on the ground around your plants and the digitalis they contain does repel rabbits.

A garlic, dish soap and red pepper mixture sprayed onto your plants is effective also (the dish soap makes the spray stick to the plant). Add some blood meal to that mixture for increased effectiveness.

Other alternatives would be spreading lavender around the base of the plants; rabbits seem to run from this smell. They also do not like catnip and really dislike used cat litter especially if from an outdoor cat who eats small animals.
