Question From: N. Crimaudo - Macomb, Michigan, United States
Q: What to do with voracious rabbits in my yard. Because of the dry weather, they have resorted to eating my Hostas, down to the root! Seems none of my garden is safe from them. I have used Deer & Rabbit pebbles to ward them off my vegetable garden but that gets expensive. Is there another method to keep them away.
You can try home made recipes that contain various combinations of cayenne pepper, garlic and other smelly and bad tasting stuff. I Googled "Do rabbits east hostas" and found lots of info. Just be aware that you will need to apply it on a regular basis and rain washes it away. Good Luck Nancy
