Rabbit was almost entirely oblivious to this; spending most of his time in his comfortable burrow, surrounded by soft earth, winding through one of his paths to the surface for an occasional nosh of the delectable vegetables in the garden he discovered. Ruth had never so much as smacked a blood-sucking mosquito, so any solution resulting in harm to her Problem was incomprehensible. Meanwhile, Rabbit trembled with instincts as the desire to procreate overcame him and drove him to evacuate the garden in search of a mate, as Ruth wasted two months and too much money on harm-free pest procurement, only to realize the Problem solved itself.
