Rabbits can be a delight to see in your garden. They may appear cute when they first appear, but rest assured they are looking for something to eat. Soon you will have to take action if you want to stop them from destroying your plants and landscape. Rabbits are nocturnal and will feed on just about any plant they are able to reach. Succulent bedding plants, just about any garden vegetable or fruit and several ground cover species of shrub are all targets for hungry grazing rabbits. Since they strike at night, rabbits may go unnoticed for weeks until eventually, the gardener may notice plants are simply disappearing or dying. As they eat randomly, instead of ingesting the entire plant, they may chew the flower or half the plant before moving on to the next maximizing the damage
Fine Mesh Metals have many products to help control or alleviate your problems.
Also known as chicken mesh, rabbit mesh is supplied by the roll in 30m lengths in two heights. This mesh is very easy to install and will protect just about anything the rabbit might target as food. Just cut it to size, place around the plant you are trying to protect and either tie it on with something like fishing line, cable ties or some light twine. Since this mesh is very light, it will move with the growth of the plant it is protecting.
If you prefer to protect a larger area it can be used alone as a light fencing or clipped to existing fencing using one of our fencing tools that can be supplied separately.
