cowgirl- you and I are on the same page. Im guessing bos doesnt have much invested as far as garden veggies or even landscaping plants. I find it hard to sympathize when the rabbits destroy my veggies or bushes around my house. I spent a decent amount of money to try to make my lawn look nice and to grow veggies at home. Im not ok with the little rodents eating them off. Survival of the fittest I guess.
It still shocks me how easy it is for some of you all to take a life because they eat a ******* plant. Like its no big deal. There are other ways to remove pests without being a dick to nature for being nature.
Does this mean your home is a relocation center for pests? I can live with bunnys but there are probably 3 moles in my mothers yard that need a good home.
I am having a huge rabbit problem as well. I am honestly contemplating injecting baby carrots with some poison and throwing them out in the yard... The girlfriend is the one holding me back because she is afraid a neighbors dog will wander into our tar and try to eat them.
Be very careful of the poison solutions. Our neighbors used an old barn tactic of putting out some "fly killer" in a solution of Sprite to get rid of the chipmunks bothering them. Turns out that it had strychnine in it. Our mini-Dachsund got out to chase a rabbit and then got attracted to the nice tasting stuff in the bowl. It caused his muscles to constrict uncontrollably and he died within an hour or so. We found out later that another neighbor had a big black lab that had gotten poisoned and it took thousands or dollars of specialized vet work to save him.
