No doubt this works but an electric fence isn't required for rabbits alone as they don't climb.

I tried the hot stuff.......several times.........does not work. Two things that worked for me are and accurate air rifle....I shot a few and managed to catch a couple small ones which I released a few miles from here, but what has worked best for me is a chicken wire fence 30" high.

That's what I said. Chicken wire worked for me. Every now and then I'd get one with a slingshot or my bow.

You are simplifying this too much. For a start it depends on whether the pee is from a male or female. In the case of the male the size of the 'nads is also a factor. See if you can get DER to put 'em on the scales......
If intending to scent mark posessions I would rather get the dogs to do it by proxy, they are better at it and have not much else to do.

yes, rabbits will rapidly take over. we have a lot of damage from them this past winter and too many around now. i've been lucky so far this season with my unfenced gardens, but i don't count on them for most of the veggie production anyways.
fencing works well enough, if you have deer in your area make the fence tall enough to keep them out too and save yourself the extra work later.
if you have chipmunks/squirrels, ground-hogs/ woodchucks, voles, moles, etc. there are ways of making the fence suitable for excluding them. you'll want a very fine mesh for excluding the smaller critters.
done well also put down heavy plastic sheeting along the fence (before you put the stakes in and before you fence), when you then put the fence up this will help you keep the weeds from growing on your fence. mulch the plastic to keep the sun off it. saves a lot of bother later. it may look rather stark, but if you let weeds grow along your fence you may not be able to notice how a critter finds a way in. also, avoiding having things growing on the fence keeps the wind from having extra things to push against and knocking it over.
do not plant vines to grow on this fence. do not use it for beans or anything else. if you want climbing vines put them on their own supports. this way if you need to electrify (for fending off raccoons, possums, ...) it is easier to manage.

Hi Songbird,
Thank you!
I sprayed yesterday with Walmart brand 89 cent per bottle, Louisiana Hot Sauce. Tuesday with Cayenne powder.
Since popping the little critter with high pressure water on Saturday, I haven't seen him since (I check with a flashlight about 12:00 midnight). No scat either.
I am not looking forward to a fence. Hopefully ...
By the way, deer around there parts can jump over an eight foot fence like it was nothing. You have to build a "cage" around your stuff. Fortunately, no deer around my neighborhood.

they can climb a short distance, if you get rabbit fencing it often isn't quite high enough. our fence here is too short and they do climb through it at times (grr!). you are better off getting small mesh fencing that goes up at least four feet. if you have other critters to protect against it is better to do the whole thing right from the start.

That's like saying that Amazon is located on the net because all users are dirt poor. Walmart stores are located in neighborhoods of all socieo economic levels but mostly affluent... if the Walmart where you live is located in a ghetto what does that say about you? It's no coincidence that the Walmart bashers are typically at the lowest socieo economic level. Obviously you've no marketable skills, and it shows from reading your posts, it's highly unlikely that you finished high school. There are three Super Walmarts that I shop in the area where I live, all in very affluent NY Capitol district hoods... in fact the largest Walmart in the US is located in a very affluent section of Albany. Several of my neighbors work for Walmart, all very well paid and happy with their job... maybe you and your ilk are of the mind set that all Walmart employees stock grocery shelves, nothing is further from the truth, most of their employees are in management positions, many hold highly technical positions... Walmart pays its accountants, IT people, buyers, marketing people, building maintenance staff, etc. as well as any comparable company and usually better. People with your attitude feel the way you do because you aren't qualified to stock Walmart's shelves. I also know people who think like you, they or someone in their family was fired from Walmart for stealing and/or drugging. Walmart has a very strict policy regarding stealing and drugging, one offence and you're gone. Walmart also does not tolerate poor attendance, if you don't show or are late you had better have a good reason. I've even ran into folks shopping at Walmart who have told me that they hate Walmart, that they'd never shop there... and there they are with a full cart of groceries. I like Walmart, simply because I like paying less. However their stores are also spacious, scrupulously clean, there's lots of parking, their staff is helpful and polite, and they sell the same exact products as everywhere else only at lower prices... the bottle of Heinz ketchup at Walmart is precisely the same as from any other store, only it costs significantly less. Why don't you apply for a job at Walmart, I'd be curious to know if they'd hire you to mop their toilets.

I find local Walmart a great place to shop with good prices and friendly help.
Walmart also goes through extra pains to make sure it sells decent products. I've done some work for a couple of vendors wanting to sell there and know this as Walmart required information on the products that other stores didn't.

If you can find anyone to help.

I have worked for those that sell to Walmart. Walmart is brutal on them. It is very hard to make a living selling to them. But, it is not personal. It is just business
By the way, I have always found the argument that Walmart places themselves in economically challenged areas to be a bit lazy. 1) it is not true, and 2) if it was true, why would you want to take those jobs away, other than you'd rather poor folks suck off the public tit rather than work for a living?
By the way, sometimes Walmart sells marginal rejects on stuff because they are cheaper. For instance, don't buy AAA, or AA batteries from them. Half of them will be dead before their expiration date. But this is no different from being informed on your purchases no matter where you shop.
Now, lets get all those poor people working at Walmart out of their jobs and on the public tit!
The problem with Walmart is 1) they are successful and 2) they are non-union.
Oh and they make great bunny repellent.

Yep. We haven't had much of a left wing for several decades. It has reached the point that a non-trivial segment of the population thinks having public schools equates to repressive socialism.

I forget where, but I read an interesting article a month or three back on tipping. Turns out that when it started, many US states considered it so vulgar that there were laws prohibiting it.

LOL. If you ever recall where you read that, could you post a link to it please? Given your use of the word 'vulgar' did you get the sense from the article that there was class related objection to tipping?

One aspect is lack of need (or perceived need).
While many aspects of the USA are highly homogenized, there really is a pretty good variety of experience without leaving the country. And that doesn't require customs, flying across an ocean or several other hassles. Certainly I know people in the US who are very fond of Europe, and go whenever there is an opportunity.
I've never been. It has appeal, but while I like experiencing the variety, I hate being a tourist. That is probably because I grew up outside Washington DC and saw the constant waves of tourists getting the standard tours and the pamphlet experience.

Hi Todd!
Well, your off topic idiocy has garnered you membership in one more kill file.
I'm sure this is beyond you, but this is "rec.gardens". Don't bother with "I didn't start it". Anyone with a brain isn't listening any more. Wasn't very smart of me to wait this long.

Do you not comprehend how a kill file works?
Dan kill-filing you has nothing to do with his continuing participation in this news group or with you being able to see his posts. It means he won't see yours.
Regarding rabbits, I believe I managed to trap and exile the one that had been giving me fits by biting through the base of my Oriental and Orienpet lilies to get to the flowers and foliage on top. Live trap baited with apples worked within hours of setting it out!

I know. Doesn't mean he won't peek.
I also think it is good for other people to see how I respond.
It is probably best that he kill files me anyway. He gets offended by alternative viewpoints (doesn't stop him from expressing his). He doesn't see debate as great fun and a chance to learn what others of different viewpoints think.

Excellent. Thank you! Love the apple tip.
Still haven't seen any sign out the cute little feller for days now.
Had a frog last year in my garden. He got the king's treatment. Made sure he had all the water he wanted.

Hi Pat,
Dan just did see it. When you quote someone that is in someone else's killfile, the killfiler still sees it because the message did not come from the person in the kill file.

beloved country losing its soul.

What alternate earth are you on? BHO is a record setting bad president, totally eclipsing his immediate predecessor GHB. We haven't had a decent president since Teddy Rosevelt.
