When wild rabbits hop around in the garden, home gardeners are not happy. A hungry rabbit family effortlessly devours an entire vegetable patch overnight and causes terrible damage in the ornamental garden. Good to know that you can send the cute long ears out of the field with simple means. How to drive rabbits out of the garden with gentle means.

Rabbits can do a lot of damage in the vegetable garden

Make your own repellent - this is how it works

You already have the ingredients for an effective deterrent against wild rabbits in the pantry or at least on the shopping list. Since bunnies dislike pungent aromas, the kitchen supplies you with everything you need to make a homemade repellent spray. That is how it goes:

  • Pour 4 liters of warm water into a large container
  • Add a tablespoon of Tabasco sauce
  • Add a tablespoon of dish soap or liquid soap as an emulsifier
  • Shake the mixture well and leave in the sun for some time
  • Pour the finished solution into a hand or pressure sprayer

If you don't have Tabasco sauce on hand, garlic cloves, 2 teaspoons red or black pepper, and chilli sauce are a good alternative. Optionally use all the ingredients together. Spray the floor with this spicy mix wherever the rabbits are up to mischief.

Ready-to-use repellent products for gentle expulsion

For home gardeners who are plagued by rabbits and have little time, specialist shops offer ready-to-use repellents. These contain only plant-based raw materials such as lavadin oil. We looked around the range and put together these proven products for you:

  • Rabbit stop from Neudorff as granules for spreading, 1 kg for the price from 9.90 euros
  • Wildlife stop from Schacht as a spray, 500 ml bottle for the price from 12.90 euros
  • Stähler's Contra-Katz in the form of granules or spray, starting at 8.80 euros

A novelty from Celaflor demonstrates how you can chase rabbits to hell with clear water. The garden guard is equipped with a motion sensor and suddenly sprays the approaching flock of rabbits with a sharp jet of water. A single device protects up to 130 square meters of garden space from cats, martens, foxes, deer and other hungry animals.


Lavadin oil is useful in numerous areas of gentle, natural defense against uninvited guests. With the lavender extract in the form of gas in cartridges, you can effectively keep underground visitors to your kitchen and ornamental garden at a distance. The sensitive noses of moles and voles also cannot stand the intense scent.
