I have a few various sized holes in my yard that I have seen rabbits and chipmunks go into. I have tried filling them and they always seem to come back. How do I get rid of these animals and holes for good, without hurting them?

You might be able to repel them using some of the commercially formulated repellent sprays. There are a number of different brands available, check the label for the specific animals repelled and application directions.

Sometimes habitat modification also helps, such as removing brush piles and hiding spots. The particular steps to take are detailed in the information below. You may need to cut and paste the complete url into your browser to make it work correctly.
