The Q&A Archives: Bunnies

Question: I have cute little bunnies every spring. And every spring<br>these bunnies eat my young plants, nearly killing them.<br>What can I do to keep them away from my plants but not harm<br>them either?

Answer: A little fence should do the job. Erect a fence of 3/4 inch diameter wire mesh, being sure it goes at least a foot into the ground. It shouldn't need to be higher than a couple of feet for little bunnies. Big ole' hares may need a 3 foot barrier.<br><br>There are also commercial rabbit repellants you can purchase at local garden centers for short term control. Then there is always your pet dog. Dogs generally don't catch the bunnies, but do scare them off.
