I don't know how to make these little buggers stop making bunny holes in my yard. I have to mow and now I have to get the babies out of the hole before doing so and put them in something to contain them so I can return them to their little den after mowing. My lawn is already super long since being on vacation and I can't put it off any longer. I hate doing this.
How do you stop wildlife from making their homes in your yard? I don't mind handling them as I know the mother will come back to care for them (I have done this in years past), and they are large enough to run and scatter if they sense the mower coming. I have no choice otherwise I would just leave them alone for the time being.

I have all kinds of little critters in my back yard, I have foxes, and squirrels, snakes, geckos, I also have mice that my cats every once in a while kill and leave me their corpse at my door as a gift.....you can't really stop them but learn to live around them, this is what I do. The sound of the lawn mower will make them hide, no need to do anything but mow that lawn...

Hasenpfeffer! JK :) The little stinkers will just hide. Maybe even run far away when they hear the mower. My Son & DH go every spring to our local Nature Preserve. They volunteer to relocate the turtles to safety so they can mow the property. It's so cute with all the little ones searching for turtles & there are tons of them. They are tagged & put back where they are found too.
