My grandmother used to sprinkle clippings of human hair around her garden to deter rabbits, and I must say that it worked pretty well. You can also sprinkle a small amount of boric acid or blood meal around the outside of the garden and get similar results.
If fencing is impractical, or damage is so slight that it is not cost effective, small plots and individual plants can be protected with a homemade repellent. To make the repellent you need one whole spanish onion, one jalepeno pepper and one tablespoon of cayenne pepper. Chop up the onion and pepper. Mix together and boil in two quarts of water for about 20 minutes. Let cool and then strain water through a cheesecloth into a container. Using a garden sprayer, spray any area outside where rabbits are being a nuisance. The process may have to be carried out for a period of two weeks to assure success. The mixture is non-toxic and safe. It will not harm the animals but will succeed in keeping them away.
