Last weekend, my dad called to tell me he had a serious groundhog problem. What should he do to make them go away? They were eating all of his pretty flowers and plants.
My mind flashed through many possible scenarios, but the Bill Murray route seemed too extreme. 🙂
The Farmer’s Almanac offers several possible solutions, but these critters are living under my parents’ deck! There was no way to pour ammonia and dish soap into the burrow.
A big dog could do the job–we took over Stuart. But the groundhogs are smart and stayed under the deck.
In the end, my parents have hired a trapper, and there has been some success! All told, there are probably six groundhogs under the deck–parents and babies. The trapper cost $150.00, but it is a more humane way to go about this. Only a few left to go!
How do you deal with groundhogs? What do you think is the best method?
