Rabbits eating my bush beans

Postby EarlyCub49 » Sun May 17, 2015 7:10 am

Will my bean plants come back after the rabbits ate the stems to one inch of the ground or do I have to replant seeds?
I'll have to make a mixture of hot sauce to spray on the plants that have not been hit yet. Maybe dried blood and bone meal works from what I have read

A 15" high electric fence has been very effective in keeping the critters out of the garden. My only mistake was not doing it sooner!

Our Border Collies have been very effective in keeping all the critters out.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Deer and Rabbit repel has worked for me, the deer were eating my young fruit trees and the rabbits were eating my sweet potatoes last year, so I bought deer and rabbit repel and sprayed. the stuff worked for me

In my experience, rabbit stew goes really well with beans on the side. Seriously though, the repel all spray at the hardware store. Skip the spraying. Tie a string about a foot above the bean row. Tear small scraps out of an old shirt, soak them in the repellent, then tie them to the string about a foot apart or so. Reapply as needed
