Rabbits are loyal fans of soya beans shoot, and will destroy your crops if you don’t protect the growing pants. To protect your crops from rabbits,


As with protection against other wildlife, the top recommendation is the use of fencing around the garden (or other area to which the rabbits are attracted) with 1/2- to 1-inch mesh chicken wire. The fence should be at least 2 feet high to keep rabbits from jumping over it

Habitat Modification.

If you have found evidence of rabbit nesting, remove it, and modify or block off the area to keep them from coming back in.

– Another method is to plant metal rings throughout the farm bed and cover them with horticultural fleece.

–  As their twitching noses indicate, rabbits sniff a lot. Try sprinkling dried sulfur around or on your plants. Rabbits also dislike the smell of onions, so try planting these around your garden to further deter the furry creatures.

– Legend has it that rabbits are terrified of their own reflection, so try an old-time rabbit remedy and place large, clear glass jars of water throughout the garden. Garden centers sell ready-made reflectors, as well as other devices—crouching cats, fake snakes, menacing owls—designed to frighten bunnies away from your plants.

– Sometimes, humane traps are the best solution. If you don’t want to buy a trap, consider building one. Place the trap where you’ve seen the rabbits feeding or resting, and cover it with a piece of canvas. Apples, carrots, cabbage, and other fresh green veggies make excellent bait. Check it often, and release bunnies in rural areas several miles away.

i hope this helps
