Rabbits have long been a nuisance for both gardeners and farmers alike with their love for garden and orchard fare.
Rabbits’ voracious appetites and prolific breeding habits have made them a pest of yards, gardens and landscapes wherever they live. Wild rabbits can do considerable damage to flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs any time of the year, especially in suburban yards, rural fields and tree plantations. They are herbivores; their diet is 90% grass, but they will eat almost any type of vegetable in the summer. Grasses, broadleaf weeds, garden crops, beans, peas, cabbage and lettuce are all favorites. In the winter, wild rabbits will eat tree buds, twigs and bark.
How to identify damage from a Rabbit:
Rabbit damage can be identified by a clean, angled cut on the end of leaves. You may also want to look for tracks left behind by the culprit ravaging your gardens. Wild rabbits have five toes on their front feet and four toes on their back. On trees and shrubs, rabbits may remove the bark completely around the trunks and stems, effectively girdling them several feet above the ground.
How to spray BOBBEX-R to deter Rabbits:
Bobbex-R Animal Repellent is a foliar spray. Apply directly on the leaf and stem of the plant. Peripheral spraying of your garden may help to keep the rabbits out. When a burrow is found, spray around and into the hole to deter it from using the burrow.
Wild rabbits will eat your flowers and vegetables, damage trees and shrubs by clipping stems, buds and small branches and by girdling larger trees. Keep your garden and landscapes rabbit-free by using BOBBEX-R Animal Repellent. Remember, BOBBEX-R Animal Repellent is all natural, environmentally friendly, and will not harm humans, pets, birds or aquatic life. Most importantly, it will not wash off!
How to locate Rabbit burrows:
Brush, junk, and tall weeds near flower and vegetable gardens provide good food and cover for rabbits. Removing debris (brush and junk) and cutting tall weeds should make the area less attractive to them.
