We had a surplus of large, white rabbits in our neighborhood once. This was a rather unexpected experience, to see three large white rabbits investigating our front yard out of the blue (multiple times). We came to find out that someone up the street was raising free range rabbits. I think they started as a 4-H project, but there were almost 45 at one point. ...
Have you called the city? They may be in violation of city code. If there isn't a code directly being offended, then push for nuisance abatement. Edit: you could also try creating a marigold border, rodentae don't like marigolds, however with the density of the population you are dealing with, you'd need an expensive dense and fat border and it may still ...

If a lot grubs come up for air (there is a threshold that needs to be determined as well as exactly what kind of grub you are dealing with) Once you know if you indeed still have a problem and what your critter is, I'd use a sod cutter, ...
Where you are, your grubs (most likely masked chafer), are probably full-size by now, and hanging out down lower than you can efficiently control. I'd wait until April, where (in your area) the larvae will move to the surface, pupate, and fly til near the end of June. Then they'll lay eggs, which will hatch into new larvae. This period (when the ...
