    There are several rabbits hiding around our fenced backyard. They have been caught in the act of eating our chicken feed. The amount of feed we buy has doubled! We are truly at a loss how to combat these pests.

    If you are inclined and it is the propper season and you have the required license a little rabbit harvest followed by application of http://www.food.com/recipes/rabbit just might take care of the pests.

    cut up some carrots and soak them in apple juice for a day and then put them in live trap...works great for me...they can be relocated somewhere else...not a problem for
    most people
