Rabbit Damage Identification

Understanding Rabbits and the Damage they Can Cause

Rabbits – A Long-Time Nuisance

Rabbits have long been a nuisance for both gardeners and farmers alike. Rabbits’ voracious appetites, love for garden and orchard fare, and prolific breeding habits have made them a pest of yards, gardens and landscapes wherever they live. Wild rabbits can do considerable damage. They are herbivores, and their diet is 90% grass, but they will eat almost any type of vegetable in the summer.

How to Identify Rabbit Damage

Grasses, broadleaf weeds, garden crops, beans, peas, cabbage, flowers, mall shrubs and lettuce are all favorites. Rabbit damage can be identified by a clean, 45-degree angled cut on the end of stems and leaves

In the winter, wild rabbits will eat tree buds, twigs and bark. Chew marks of rabbits can be found on the trunks of trees and shrubs a few inches aboveground. Rabbits may even remove the bark completely around the trunks and stems, effectively girdling, them several feet above the ground. This behavior is also called ring barking.

Other Signs of Rabbit

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 much longer hind feet. Look for droppings that resemble pea-sized individual pellets.
