Same as with squirrels, wait until after the 3rd or 4th hard frost and all the parasites should be dead.
Tularemia or rabbit fever can affect rabbits during any month of the year including the dead of winter. Parasites can also infest rabbits year round. One of the most common skin parasites the warbel ( aka wolf)does typically go away in late fall.
Rabbits found with warbels are safe to eat. To prevent possible contraction of rabbit fever, wear rubber gloves while dressing the rabbit and make sure to cook well done.
If their fur looks healthy. If they arent missing alot they should be fine.
Listen to Beekeeper and Rabbitpolice.
