The Q&A Archives: I have a jackrabbit in my garden

Question: I found a cute, little jack rabbit bunny in my yard. Is there anything I can do to keep it out. I don't want to hurt it but I dont want it eating up my plants? It leaves its droppings on my lawn and its getting quite frustrating.

Answer: The droppings are actually good fertilizer for your lawn! The concern is that the rabbit must be eating something in your yard, or it wouldn't be leaving droppings. There's not much you can do aside from caging your most favorite plants so they're not devoured. There are commercial repellants available in the garden section of your local Home Depot or online. They are typically sprays that you use on your plants. They taste bad to bunnies and the hope is that they will feed elsewhere.

Best wishes with your garden!
