Default Pest Control - finally got the vermin chewing on my hops

Thumper got thumped...

I noticed some damage to the low portions of my hops along with something digging and attacking the root system... then this morning I noticed the little gray fur ball having a meal.

I baited the back yard with a hand full of mixed nuts, set my bow just inside the small garage door, and about an hour ago, me and thumper had a conversation... thumper agreed to wait in the fridge for the grill to warm up...

If I could only get Japanese beetles to go after mixed nuts...

We got rabbits 'round here. Interesting ...something digs in the beds around the house ...been thinking it was cats ...maybe it was wabbits.

Strange. We have a family of rabbits living under our back porch, right next to the hop garden. They haven't so much as paused to sniff the bines.
