I am readying the kettle. As soon as I catch that varmint he/she is history.
Recently I planted several beautiful Emu bushes. We are trying to get the yard back in shape after a hard Arizona winter. The Emus were doing nicely taking root, filling out and blooming with pretty pink flower buds.
Then it happened. We woke up to find our local rabbit population threw a party overnite at our expense. They didn't even bother to clean up after themselves.
One of out new Emu bushes was nibbled down to a mere shadow of its former self and they began to munch away at a few others.
This morning they are all surrounded by a nice ring of chicken wire. We also dumped a bunch of Irish Spring soap shavings around the base hoping the smell while keep them away. It's a manly smell, hopefully they won't like it too. Here's hoping that keeps them a bay for a while.
