How to get rid of Rabit in the backyard


Use dried Blood...forget finding it at one of the local home improvement gardens sections.....go to you local nursery place....or find it on line...it is safe...and very effective(organic)....or try anyone of the Preditor urine products.....used cougar pee in TX for deer, rabbit...and it even kept the sqirrels from messing with my veggies......bobcat, cougar, fox, wolf...all of these are available on line......and no you can not smell them unless you stick your nose right in it......safe for the kids.....

How to get rid of Rabit in the backyard


Once I set up the fence... the rabbit has been out of sight... since then... so I think as long as the fence does not get rust which it doesn't etc... this is the best solution as smelling solution will last for a while but not forever... my appox 200 feet fence cost only $50 bucks... which is not too much different from the medical approach... it needs approx 2 hours labour to set it up though... but with those fence nails (U shape galvanized steel) it is very nice looking, and no dangerous to any babies/kids...etc. so for anyone who face same challenge... I would recommend them to go with Fence approach...

Guess what, the rabit is back while I was in Hong Kong. My wife called me... one of the spot in the fence is has a low point, couldn't believe he is so presistnt... well it is too cold now... but once I saw him... I am sure I can catch him as he has only one exit right now... I am looking at Rabit receipy.... I heard they are tasty...

How to get rid of Rabit in the backyard


I have to admit, this thread has made my day!

It sounds like bugs bunny has always come back with more than 9 lives.

I had an interesting mouse problem in my garage in the late fall where 3 (blind mice) attacked my seed bag and made a mess of things...trust me, mouse stew was not on my mind, but dollar store mouse traps did the job within 12 hours of setting them up!

Anyways, I hope the Rabbit doesn't come back with his extended family.

McVane.

How to get rid of Rabit in the backyard


If I used paint ball gun... humain society will probably contact me and I might get into trouble.... I might catch him and put it in a cage for a summer like (I will feed him) he is in a prison for going into someone else property and provide some zoo experience for my 3 and 2 years old.... then release him in the winter...

Depending on where your neighbors are a bow works well... A pellet gun lets the rabbit run after getting hit and possibly die in a neighbors yard, now stick an arrow through him and you can stick him to the ground, no chasing no matter where you hit him.

Catch then alive with Hav-A-Heart traps, then release maybe in a park, nature reserve, hiking trail. the good news is - if you have rabbits, you probably do not have coyotes!
