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.
Bobbex-R Animal Repellent comes in 2 formulas:
Ready to Use Spray; easy to use, no mixing, no mess
Concentrated Spray; mix with water into a pressurized sprayer
Easy-to-use Bobbex-R, small animal repellent formulation, is all natural, environmentally friendly and safe for use in protecting ornamental plantings in landscapes and gardens. The product is proven effective and works through the use of smell and taste aversion.
Bobbex-R can be used in any weather and will not burn plants or wash off regardless of rain, snow or watering. This product can be used on low lying vegetation, flower beds, gardens and is recommended as a bulb-dip to deter underground damage after planting. It can also be sprayed at the mouth of burrows and holes to prevent animal re-entry. Bobbex-R is safe to humans, pets, birds and aquatic life, and contains no petro chemicals.
Bobbex-R will also help protect plantings from reduced moisture content during periods of water reduced weather conditions. In winter, cold weather, blustery winds and frozen soil reduce plant’s ability to absorb moisture needed to maintain vitality. Bobbex-R provides retention of moisture in plantings through periods of frigid weather, reduces damage from late spring or early fall frost and decreases the desiccating effects of a hot summer day.
