Rabbits and hares are swift creatures that bound over the ground in leaps. Their hind legs are long and powerful, and their front legs are able to withstand the shock of landing. Their long ears pick up sounds either soft or distant. They have puffy tails and average in size of two to four pounds and 15 to 19 inches long. Jack rabbits and hares differ from the other cottontails in that they are typically bigger in size and have longer ears. Rabbits may be cute and adorable looking but they can also be a pest causing damage in both your yard and garden, and in buildings on your property. They may enter a wall or crawlspace or dig under a porch to find a place for shelter and to bear their young. Rabbits often stay there for years, causing damage to the building and electrical wiring that could cause a fire and will reduce its value, and rabbits also create health problems, caused by their feces (droppings) left behind.
Do you have a rabbit problem?
What to look for:
- Plant damage. Rabbits will eat randomly. Instead of ingesting the entire plant, they may only chew the flower or half the plant before moving to the next. Rabbits have a huge appetite for vegetables and flowers. Succulent tulips are one of their favorites but just about any garden vegetable or fruit and several ground cover species of shrub are all targets for hungry grazing rabbits.
- Droppings around the suspected area. Rabbit droppings are round and small – looking much like a "Cocoa Puff" cereal.
- Seeing the rabbit in your home or around on your property.
