Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail. We all know the children's Easter bunny song and soon Peter Cottontail will be hopping to your home to leave your children's basket for them to find Easter morning. However, other bunnies beside the Easter bunny don't leave great gifts and once they set up camp, they are there to stay.
Rabbits like to feed on grass, forbs, and leafy weeds. These furry little creatures love to check out what you've planted in your flower garden so they can use it as a buffet to decide what looks appeasing to them. They search out what they want to eat and then take their time eating what they find gnawing all the way to the root. All the hard work in digging, planting and fertilizing that you did to your lawn will be for not and the money you spent to beautify your lawn will be down the toilet.
Also, urine from rabbits is extremely acidic and will kill spots in your lawn when it occurs. Brown spots will start to show once the urine soaks into the soil, to the root, and then will spread outward. Your once hunter green lawn will start to look as if you sprayed roundup around. The lawn will have to be re-seeded and fertilized to bring your lawn back to health which can also cost a hefty chunk out of your wallet.
If you see any of your portion of your lawn that looks as if it's shorter in spots and see brown spots. If you notice your flower garden is being gnawed on and seen rabbits living around your lawn, give Elite Wildlife Removal a call at 804-867-7184.
