    A Beagle. Just kiddding. Check with your local farm center and see if they have a spray or deterant of some kind to keep the bunnies away.

    Give this a try for rabbits or any other animal that eats flowers, bulbs or vegetables. ( Hot Pepper Wax Animal Repellent Concentrate ) By St. Gabriel Laboratories - Gainesville, Virgina - www.milkyspore.com - 1-800-801-0061. I had a war with rabbits and 25 reindeer raiding the garden and ( I did ) win. Mix it VERY strong. The rain will wash it off and you will have to do it again but, that is about the only thing that works. Good Luck - J & J Landscaping - Jimmy C

    I thought Milky Spore was for grubs. The Kentucky COOP Extension Service issued it's findings of a study it did on MS, and the results were not impressive. I think it said it may or may not work, depending on certain factors. Basically the change was not significant, at least for it's intended purpose.

    Rabbits are another story. I hadn't heard this, and have also looked for something to deter rabiys from eating all of the young tasty perennials.
