Question DetailsAsked on 6/6/2014

How do you get rid of a rabbit family that has moved in under your concrete patio?

We have rabbits that have dug down under the concrete patio. I have tried sticking moth balls in the holes and filling the holes in with dirt and have sprayed ever "rabbit deterrent" product I can find around and in the area but they won't go away. Have thought about poison of some kind but would rather get the rabbits to "move" rather that kill them and have them rot under the patio. Suggestions?

Hello, this is Meranda with Angie's List.


This may be overkill for your situation, but you can log in at www.angieslist.com and search for the category "Animal Removal" to see our top rated providers in your area. A few years ago a family of chipmunks decided to burrow under my screened-in porch, and an animal removal company was able to live trap and relocate them.


You can also contact our call center at 1-888-944-5478 or send a written request to memberservices@angieslist.com for help finding an animal removal company. The call center hours are Mon-Fri: 8:30am – 8:15pm ET and Sat: 8:30am – 3:00pm ET


Thanks!

If you do get them out of there, or catch them away from home sometime, you could pour a slightly thin mix of mortar mix down there - may take a couple of times, but do that a few times and it will discourage them. Also will fill in the voids so your patio does not settle. I say mortar mix as it will flow nicely with a bit of vibrating with a stick - concrete mix will not flow very far in, so will not fill the voids that could cause undermining of your patio next time it gets wet in that area.


Personally, I would just go ahead and pour it in - I have never seen a rabbot that did not have a back door to escape from - once you see them bolt, then pour that hole full too.
