[NAFEX] Rabbit repeler spray

We use the Innotek invisible fence to keep our 2 hunting dogs in the yard.
It does work surprisingly well.  I am sure the rabbits do their damage at
night when the dogs are in the house but they do give them a run for their
money and do disturb their nests during the summer.  I usually try to keep
doing some pruning during the winter so the rabbits will hopefully eat the
prunings instead of my raspberries, gooseberries and currants.  Judson L.

either. Heh, heh. Admittedly, they might be useful to deter rabbits and
raccoons - anything that can climb over the fence.
It is MUCH easier to fence in dogs than to fence out small,
burrowing.climbing animals like rabbits and chipmunks and squirrels and
raccoons.  A dog is certainly a major commitment, but they are one of the
more effective methods of garden pest control.
