block it off, move it, spray it with bitter apple spray (doesn't always work)

Only way to make them stop is by moving it away.

hiding it mostly.. they seem to be attracted to it no matter how much you shoo them away, some people have had success with the bitter sprays, but i wouldn't risk it. the best way to keep bunny (and your electronics) safe is to hide the wires, or block them off, you can use NIC panels to form a little gate, or you can buy hard covers to put over the wires, but in our house, if theres a wire exposed somewhere, hoppity will find it. silly little thing she is, we've been able to tuck most of them behind furniture, then we just have to block off so she cant get behind it.

I don't have any wires at all in my bunny room, but in the other rooms that the bunnies sometimes go to I make sure all the wires are up high, blocked off, or covered in plastic wire protectors. You can buy wire protectors at some hardware stores and also pet stores and online. Just make sure to keep an eye on them, because the bunnies will still chew on the protectors and if they chew through them completly it's possable they can get to the wires.

Again like everyone said hide them.. although i used to find my bunny always had ways of finding them.. could you not make a little pen for him? just so you can put him in there or block of where your wires are? there is also things called Wire tidys that zip up over the wires like these plastic things so your wires are covered" xx

Everyone has pretty much said it all, but make sure you don't leave the bunny alone if you know the room is not totally bunny proof. I let my bunny running around the house only if I'm free to look after him, my living room is the only place where I can't have it completely bunny proof, so everytime I let him out play I make sure that I always available to watch after him.

When Smudge has his floortime, I always block off anything potentially dangerous by making a NIC gate around it. ^^ Sometimes pet store sell bunny-proof tube things that protect the electric cords.

In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
