The other day I was talking to a neighbor who also gardens and I asked her if she had any problems with rabbits(hasenpfeffer would be one solution).She said yes,until she started sprinkling her hair clippings around the garden,and that keeps them away. I only said that I'd have to think on that one and walked away.That hair breaks down in the soil,and the thought of eating my own molecules kind of turned my stomach.

Some of my stray bits of hair go into my worm farm, and eventually become compost for the garden. But it's mostly vegetable refuse.

How bad can hair molecules be after manure molecules?

I look at it this way-If you are what you eat,then just be yourself,I guess.

I hate to tell you, but your mouth sluffs off skin and material all the time, and it ends up in your stomech, so you are eating your self constantly.
In otherwords, what's the BGD?

Your hair is good for driving away gophers and moles too.

So that would be using HAIRS to keep away HARES?

My wife harvests about two bags full of dog hair from
our dog each year. It all comes from the dog's weekly
brushing. Our up-the-road neighbor uses the stuff
around his garden to keep critters (including deer !)
It seems to work.

The little beggars have now stripped out all my beans.I think I'll wait until August,plant some peas(again) and try the novel idea of putting a FENCE of chicken wire up.I've never had so much trouble with critters(although raccoons did strip my corn a few years ago).

Will not work. Remember Bugs Bunny. Rabbits can go under chicken wire. Sounds like an excuse to buy a pellet gun. If you are too squeamish for shooting, borrow a beagle. The dog was bred to run them down. Either way, dead rabbits are good to eat (especially ones fat on your garden).

I've dug my fencing about 6 " underground, my "gate" has fencing 6" down and 16" up and then is lapped by another piece from ground up to 4". so far no rabbits.
