The Q&A Archives: rabbits

Question: recently we have a rabbit problem in our yard. They nested, and now think the yard is theirs!! They have eatten some flowers, as well as nawed down my tomatoe plants. Will the plants continue to grow, if they only ate the leaves, or should I count them as loss?

Answer: Tomato plants are reasonably hardy so yours should develop new leaves. I'd place chicken wire cylinders around each plant to protect them from future nibbling. Rabbits are really difficult to deter but you might try spraying Ropel or Deer Away on the leaves of your plants to see if that keeps them from feeding. Apply according to label directions. Best wishes with your plants!
