ABSTRACT
The author talks about a method he developed in preventing rabbits from eating rosebushes. Knowing that foxes are natural predators of rabbits, he simulated the presence of these animals by using fox urine. He applied several drops of fox urine in cotton balls that are inside a film canister and taped it upside down to a piece of dowel that is placed in the ground next to a rose bush. He put similar devices every ten feet in his rose beds and reapplies fox urine every week.
