Rabbits in Garden?

Will a pellet gun kill a rabbit? If so what kind should I get? We have two different rabbit holes! Tons of rabbits. I even hit one with my car in the driveway. They are everywhere and I have tried everything. I don't want to kill them but they are eating my garden, flowers, and ruining my grass.

Try Liquid Fence, and start applying early. You can get it at hardware stores, Home Depot, Lowes.

rabbit problems

I also have had good luck with Liquid Fence. It smells awful, but will work over time!

Pellet gun prob. won't kill them (depends on the gun) but that's the problem....it will penetrate, ya don't wanna torture them, try the Liquid Fence.

If not, look for the Havahart(dot)com it catches them without harm. Then you can take bunny on a long, long ride to re-locate.

P.S.-Found this page at the Haveahart site, might help? http://www.havahart.com/advice/critt...rabbit-control

how about a real chicken wire fence... unless you have a real large property... works well for us... once surrounded... rabit still come in in the beginning...but after we trace them out as it is more difficult for them to exit... they don't come back no more...
