The Q&A Archives: Rabbit Control

Question: How can I control the rabbits in the garden that eat on all the vegetables? I've tried moth balls to no avail.

Answer: Moth balls don't really deter hungry rabbits. About the only long-term solution is to fence your garden with chicken wire, burying it a good 12 inches into the soil. You can make hoop frames out of PVC pipe and drape the wire over, attaching it to the hoops. When you bury the ends, make an "L" shape with the end pointing away from the garden. This method makes weeding difficult so be sure to mulch your bed with 3-4 inches of organic matter to help suppress weeds. Better luck with your garden this season!
