    Well I was reading it’s also good for rats. So if it gets them it will definitely get rabbits. Worth a try

    Many people have suggested this and it seems to work. The only way you will know for sure if it works for you is to try it. A few bars of soap don't cost much!

    Irish Spring soap repels mammal pests, such as mice, rabbit and deer. It does not repel insect pests. Irish Spring soap does not always eliminate pests completely , but can be a helpful tool to reduce the rate of attack on plants.Dog hair,human hair works well also motion sensor sprinkler heads

    I've heard that marigolds are good for that, too, but I don't really have a rabbit problem so I don't know if it works. At least you won't have to keep grating soap if it does.

    I was having a problem with mice in my house. Someone suggested Irish Spring soap to get rid of them. All it did was give them something else to eat! It didn’t work at all.
